Issue Notes

Overstreet lists two 1946 issues, #1 and #1-Ribtickler. One of the two known sets of contents for this issue is a rebound Ribtickler. The content of the issue being indexed is a rebinding of the 1944 issue of this series.

This is the only known issue to bear both the "Great Comic Library / World's Greatest Comics" back cover (usually seen on issues published by Wm. H. Wise such as the 1944 issue of this series) and the winking foxhead logo.

While there is no "published by" statement in the indicia, the copyright statement and brand logo make it extremely likely that Fox Feature Syndicate, Inc. was the publisher.
