Motion Picture Funnies Weekly #'s 2-4


It's a well-known fact in comics history today that Bill Everett's SUB-MARINER appeared in an 8 page story in an undistributed comic book titled MOTION PICTURE FUNNIES WEEKLY # 1. The discovery of a handful of these ultra-rare issues in a 1974 warehouse find, however, required a rather major rewrite of comics history as it was then known! Another less known fact today is that while this was the one and only known issue to have been produced, there WERE cover proofs discovered for the next three issues. Digging way back in the archives, I found these images clipped from a 1974 issue of TBG!

wasn't it more of an estate sale find than a warehouse find?
