Issue Notes

Indicia: "JINGLE JANGLE COMICS No. 1. 1942. Published bi-monthly and copyright by Famous Funnies, Inc., Fifth Ave., New York, N.Y. ...". Front page clearly states "February".

Indicia information might indicate a cover date of February 1942, but most credible date nonetheless is February 1943, meaning that the book was issued late 1942, with a return date in February 1943.

Several of the books advertised within (eg. Famous Funnies #'s 100 and 101, Skyman #2, and Heroic Comics #16) were issued late '42 or early '43, indicating that this book indeed was published late '42 or early '43.
