Secrets Behind the Comics Ad

Here we have, from the pages of late-forties Timely Comics, a mail-order ad for one of the first books on comics! SECRETS BEHIND THE COMICS was written by the one and only Stan (the Man) Lee! I've seen a few copies but have never been priviliged to have a copy here at the Library. Seems like it may have been reprinted at one point but I'm too lazy to check right now.


  1. yes, there is a bootleg copy out there. It's alot more common than the original.

  2. Now this shows some great digging. There's so much quirky comics history out there hidden in plain sight, essentially, yet few take the time. Good find and thanks for sharing.
