  • numbering continues with Comedy Comics (Marvel, 1942 series) #9
    Changed from a superhero series to a comedy / funny animal series. Several superhero features continued into the first few issues under the new name and genre.
  • numbering continues with Daring Comics (Marvel, 1944 series) #9
    Daring Mystery Comics was originally continued as Comedy Comics with no time gap. Later, the "Daring" name was re-launched as Daring Comics picking up the numbering again.
Publishing hiatus between #6 and #7 from October 1940 to March 1941 with nearly as long of a gap between #7 and #8. Title clearly continued into the 1942 Comedy Comics series as it continued both the volume and issue numbering as well as four of the features that were present in issue #8. Numbering also continued two years later as Daring Comics.
