Notes:
The American Comics Group, from 1946 to 1953, was co-owned by Fred Iger who also owned part of National Periodical Publications. Iger was sole owner from 1953 to the early 1960s, when Harry Donenfeld became co-owner. They were distributed by Independent News Co., which was a sister company to DC comics.

In 1967 the line of newsstand titles was cancelled, but the Custom Comics part of the business lasted until at least the late seventies.
