Indexer Notes

Foreword by Roy Thomas, includes reproductions of the covers of Famous First Edition (DC, 1974 series) C-26 and C-28. The foreword explains the history of New Fun #1, and the creators and features included. It also explains how a planned Millennium Edition reprint was shelved in 2000 over concerns about if DC had the rights to reprint the Oswald the Rabbit strips. Later it was determined that they were within their rights to reprint those strips for this collection.
