Issue Notes

On sale date based on a house ad in the previous issue of The Funnies which states that this issue was expected to be on sale Monday June 28th. A house ad in Popular Comics (1936 series) #19 gives a date of June 25th. It is assumed that the information given in The Funnies #10 more accurately indicates the intended on sale date of issue #11.
