The year printed in the indicia is 1947, so this issue has always been considered a May 1947 issue. This appears to be incorrect for two reasons. This issue was copyrighted by Magazine Village in 1948 with a publishing date (i.e. on-sale date) of March 2, 1948, making the cover date actually May 1948. Also, this issue includes an ad for a Personal Comics Album. As best as can be determined, these ads did not start appearing until comics cover-dated September 1947, and continued in 1948.
