In keeping with the publisher and title threads that have been so active lately, here is a thread in which to post Adventure Comics, including its predecessor titles. I will start things off with the first issue (from the "S" pedigree):

Although I don't collect these titles (pre-hero Adventures, More Fun, etc), I appriciate the artwork and scarcity. I also appriciate those of you who do collect them. Keep them coming! thumbsup2.gif

Again, I don't have a lot of mine scanned yet, but here are a few. I absolutely LOVE this run of covers. I consider these books to be the pinnacle of the early Golden Age.

The page quality on that New Comics #2 is ridiculous. Bone white.

Win that is a beautiful #24. The pages look bone white. Is it a pedigree?

Here is another of the early New Comics, no. 5. Admittedly, these covers pale in comparison to the Flessels.

Doubtful. It has a sealed spine split, but is otherwise unrestored (I believe).

What impresses me about this New 5 is that the few other copies I've seen have discoloration fade on the front cover (as if it is unstable). Peter, to your knowledge is that true for this title - first 6 issues - or maybe just this particular issue?

Wow! I've never seen the NA #24 before! Gorgeous looking copy, and really cements Flessel as one of the best artists that has worked in comics! 893applaud-thumb.gif

Those early New Comics have their own charm. Here's my #6

The first six issues of New Comics, like the first few issues of More/New Fun, are on unglossed paper stock. Therefore, they all have a greater tendency to fade. It is rare to find one with rich colors like your More Fun #7. For some reason, the #5 experiences more fading/discoloring than any other issue. I don't know why.

Staying with New Comics for now, here's #9. They've obviously switched to more stable paper stock at this point.
