Click for more detail...

1496

Classics Illustrated Junior: Cinderella Comic Book No. 503 Vintage Classics Illustrated Junior comic book published by Famous Authors, Ltd., which was a division of Gilberton Company, Inc. or Gilberton Publications. This is the Cinderella comic book, No. 503 (Number 503), which was the third title in the series (the first title was numbered 501), with 15 cents price on cover, dated on the inside December 1953.

We do not know if this is a first edition of this comic book. All the other books in the Classics Illustrated Junior series we are listing have a listing on their back cover showing the other comic books available in this series, but this comic does not. On its back cover is an ad for a recording of these fairy tales which lists some of the titles with pictures of the covers but not Cinderella (see second image). The inside front cover has a subscription ad for the comic series showing the Pinocchio cover art (Pinocchio was number 513 in the series). The inside back cover has an ad for Gilberton's Classics Illustrated series, which lists to No. 147 Ben Hur. Hopefully some of this information will help you date this Cinderella comic book. This book is not the new reprint (there is no UPC block on this book).

All the Classics Illustrated and Classics Illustrated Junior comic books we are listing came out of the same home where they were purchased as new items for their children in the 1950's and 1960's, so these are not recent reprints. The Classics Illustrated Junior comic books are generally in good/very good or acceptable reading condition but are definitely not mint, showing varying levels of age and wear which will be detailed. All were read and handled by children and thus show expected handling wear. All have interior pages which are browned at the edges, looking overall with an aged paper look, that is, the interior pages are not white as they would have been originally. All have an old comic book smell, not bad, but there if you go sniffing. Many have a child's name or initial noticeably written on the front cover in ink or crayon (and a few have more writing on the cover). For many the interior "connect the dots" illustration has been done or the interior coloring page has been colored.

This Cinderella is a very nice copy overall, but does have a child's first and last name prominently written in ink on the front cover, with the back cover having some notations, check marks and writing in blue ink. There is no connect the dots or coloring page in this comic as printed. The comic does have usual age reading use/wear with cover wrinkling/creasing/handling/bending wear, a large diagonal fold line on the lower portion, a series of indented lines (as if someone wrote on another piece of paper when it was sitting on top of this comic, no stains but the lines are visible when held at an angle in bright light), corner folding lines and curling in the lower right corner, corner tip chipping in the upper right corner, chipping and wrinkling along the bottom front cover edge, etc. The back cover seems generally slightly dirty, with similar folding, creasing, wrinkling, etc. The inside pages are clean, a few having a pin hole (we believe this is from how the paper was made/handled in printing) or a corner tip folded. This copy includes a page after the story illustrating and telling the Jack and Jill rhyme, with an illustrated page about Giant Pandas on the reverse side.

This collectible comic book measures about 7 x 10 3/8 inches in size. Given that this is an old or vintage comic book, we do not know what kind of ink was used in the printing (and particularly, whether any lead based inks were used). As such, we will only sell this comic to adult collectors, it should be handled with care, and it should not be given to/handled by children due to concerns with lead exposure.

We have many other comic books listed separately for sale. If you wish to purchase more than one comic book, please e-mail us before placing the order since the shipping information has been inputted for a purchase of just one and will not calculate the savings you would get when purchasing more than one shipped together in the same package (we will need to handle this for you).

Please Note: Comic books must be shipped via U.S.P.S. First Class Mail Package rate; they cannot be shipped via U.S.P.S. Media Mail. The post office does not permit comic books to be shipped via Media Mail due to the advertising that many include in their books. Please choose First Class Mail Package rate shipping for this item (also known as First Class Mail Parcel rate). Thank you.

The inside back cover has an ad for Gilberton's Classics Illustrated series, which lists to No. 142 Abraham Lincoln. This book is not the new reprint (there is no UPC block on this book).

For many the interior "connect the dots" illustration has been done or the interior coloring page has been colored.

This Sleeping Beauty comic is a nice copy overall, but does have a child's first name prominently written in crayon on the front cover with the first initial/letter also written in a second location in pencil. On the back cover the child's first name was written onto the order block in pencil, with a lot of check marks and other scribbling among the comic title list (see both images). The comic does have usual age reading use/wear with cover wrinkling/creasing/handling/bending wear, a small curved rip to white with other bending/folding lines along the bottom edge (with this same rip on the bottom of the first comic page and here having a piece that is almost ripped off), wrinkling/tiny chipping along the top and bottom cover edges overall, several small diagonal corner lines in the lower right corner, bending/chipping to the upper right corner, crease/cracking lines in the front colors, wear along the left bound/stapled edge with crack lines/etc. The back cover seems generally slightly dirty, with similar folding, creasing, wrinkling, etc. The inside pages are otherwise clean. This copy includes a page after the story illustrating and telling the Simple Simon rhyme, with an illustrated page about camels on the reverse side. There is no connect the dots or coloring page in this comic as printed. There is some pencil writing of three numbers on the inside back cover page.

For many the interior "connect the dots" illustration has been done or the interior coloring page has been colored.

This Jack and the Beanstalk comic is a very nice copy overall, but does have a child's first name prominently written in crayon on the front cover with the first initial/letter also written nearby in blue ink pen (see image). On the inside front cover there is a little bit of red crayon on the connect the dots picture (and the prominent backside of the letter/initial written hard on the front cover).

Classics Illustrated Junior: Thumbelina Comic Book No. 520 A Vintage Classics Illustrated Junior comic book published by Famous Authors, Ltd., which was a division of Gilberton Company, Inc. or Gilberton Publications. This is the Thumbelina comic book, No. 520 (Number 520), with 15 cents price on cover, dated on the inside November 1955. It is not a first edition as the listing on the back cover of other comic books available in the series ends with No. 552 The 3 Little Dwarfs (HRN #552). For other age perspective, on the inside back cover there is a listing of comics available in the Classics Illustrated series which ends with No. 143 Kim. This book is not the new reprint (there is no UPC block on this book). Please note that we have two copies of this Thumbelina comic and are listing each separately as "A" and "B".

All the Classics Illustrated and Classics Illustrated Junior comic books we are listing came out of the same home where they were purchased as new items for their children in the 1950's and 1960's, so these are not recent reprints.

For many the interior "connect the dots" illustration has been done or the interior coloring page has been colored.

This Thumbelina comic is an acceptable reading copy overall, but does have a child's first letter initial written prominently on the front cover in crayon (see image). There is no connect the dots or coloring page in this comic as printed. The comic does have lots of usual age reading use/wear with many visible cover creasing lines, a small diagonal fold line in the lower right corner, corner tip wear in both right corners, edge wear/chipping along the top, bottom and right side edges, a lot of wear along the left bound/stapled edge, crease/cracking lines in the front colors, and other wrinkling/creasing/handling/bending wear, etc. The back cover seems generally dirty, with a left side edge tear (that also goes through several of the back comic pages), lots of similar folding, creasing, wrinkling, etc. Also, there are many ink pen check marks and someone has written in the names and numbers for three additional comics in the series. The inside pages are clean but browned, with some having a little dirt to them and some having pin holes in the paper (we believe this is from how the paper was made/handled in printing). This copy includes a page after the story illustrating and telling the Bed in Summer poem from "A Child's Garden of Verses" by Robert Louis Stevenson, with an illustrated page telling the nursery rhyme/poem Cock Robin and Jenny Wren on the reverse side.

It is not a first edition as the listing on the back cover of other comic books available in the series ends with No. 568 The Happy Hedgehog (HRN #568). This book is not the new reprint (there is no UPC block on this book). Please note that we have two copies of this The Penny Prince comic and are listing each separately as "A" and "B".

All the Classics Illustrated and Classics Illustrated Junior comic books we are listing came out of the same home where they were purchased as new items for their children in the 1950's and 1960's, so these are not recent reprints. The Classics Illustrated Junior comic books are generally in good/very good or acceptable reading condition but are definitely not mint, showing varying levels of age and wear which will be detailed. All were read and handled by children and thus show expected handling wear. All have interior pages which are browned at the edges, looking overall with an aged paper look, that is, the interior pages are not white as they would have been originally. All have an old comic book smell, not bad, but there if you go sniffing. Many have a child's name or initial noticeably written on the front cover in ink or crayon (and a few have more writing on the cover). For many the interior "connect the dots" illustration has been done or the interior coloring page has been colored.

The Penny Prince comic is in very nice condition overall, but does have a child's first name written prominently in crayon on the front cover with the letter initial of this name also written nearby in blue ink pen. The inside front cover connect the dots picture and the inside back cover coloring picture are clean/have not been done or colored. The comic does have usual age reading use/wear but a lot less than many of the other comics we are listing. There is handling wear but no large visible creasing or creases through the front cover colors. You can see at an angle in bright light evidence of handling via circular creases, lines, marks, etc. There is a small diagonal fold near the lower right corner and corner tip bending/wear to both right corners. There is some edge wear (bending/wrinkling) to the top, bottom and right side edges but nothing bad. There is visible paper wear along the left bound/stapled edge as expected. But this is a nice looking front cover overall. The back cover has an aged/slightly dirty look with some tiny darkening spots along the left edge and a tiny tear along the bottom edge, with other general wear/chipping along all three non-bound edges. The inside pages are browned but clean, with most having a slight diagonal crease along the bottom right, and a number of pages towards the back having pin holes and small holes in the paper (we believe this is from how the paper was made/handled in printing). This copy includes two pages after the story illustrating the Aesop's Fables The Two Goats, followed by an illustrated page telling the nursery rhyme Three Little Kittens, which on its reverse side has an illustrated page, The Animal World The Rabbit.

This collectible comic book measures about 6 7/8 x 10 5/16 inches in size. Given that this is an old or vintage comic book, we do not know what kind of ink was used in the printing (and particularly, whether any lead based inks were used). As such, we will only sell this comic to adult collectors, it should be handled with care, and it should not be given to/handled by children due to concerns with lead exposure.

We have many other comic books listed separately for sale. If you wish to purchase more than one comic book, please e-mail us before placing the order since the shipping information has been inputted for a purchase of just one and will not calculate the savings you would get when purchasing more than one shipped together in the same package (we will need to handle this for you).

Classics Illustrated Jr: The Dancing Princesses Comic Book No. 532 B Vintage Classics Illustrated Junior comic book published by Famous Authors, Ltd., which was a division of Gilberton Company, Inc. or Gilberton Publications. This is The Dancing Princesses comic book, No. 532 (Number 532), with 15 cents price on cover, dated on the inside November 1956. This is not a first edition as the listing on the back cover of other comic books available in the series ends with No. 567 The Bearskin Soldier (HRN #567). This book is not the new reprint (there is no UPC block on this book). Please note that we have two copies of this The Dancing Princesses comic and are listing each separately as "A" and "B". From the differences in the HRN numbers, copy "A" is older than copy "B" (HRN 533 vs. HRN 567).

This The Dancing Princesses comic is in very good condition overall (we judge copy "B" to be in much better condition than copy "A"), but does have a child's first name written prominently on the cover in crayon (see image). The connect the dots picture on the inside front cover and the coloring page on the inside back cover are clean, that is they have not been done or colored at all. The comic does have usual age reading use/wear including on the front cover a large diagonal crease line going through the boy's/princes' head and raised arm, a lighter vertical crease line basically going down the middle of the cover, other wrinkling/creasing/handling wear, a diagonal fold line near the lower right corner plus corner tip wear/bending wear here and in the upper right corner, wear/tiny bending/chipping along the top, bottom and right side edges, paper wear along the left bound/stapled edge, etc. The back cover appears a lot cleaner looking than many of the other comics, but still has similar expected slight use/handling wear (wrinkling, creasing, etc.). The inside pages are clean but browned, with one page seen to have some dark staining. This copy includes a page after the story illustrating and telling the Little Jack Horner rhyme, with an illustrated page telling The Animal World, The Porcupine on the reverse side.

This collectible comic book measures about 7 x 10 1/4 inches in size.

1506

Classics Illustrated Junior: The Magic Fountain Comic Book No. 533 Vintage Classics Illustrated Junior comic book published by Famous Authors, Ltd., which was a division of Gilberton Company, Inc. or Gilberton Publications. This is the The Magic Fountain comic book, No. 533 (Number 533), with 15 cents price on cover, dated on the inside December 1956. It is not a first edition as the listing on the back cover of other comic books available in the series ends with No. 562 The Enchanted Pony (HRN #562). This book is not the new reprint (there is no UPC block on this book).

All the Classics Illustrated and Classics Illustrated Junior comic books we are listing came out of the same home where they were purchased as new items for their children in the 1950's and 1960's, so these are not recent reprints. The Classics Illustrated Junior comic books are generally in good/very good or acceptable reading condition but are definitely not mint, showing varying levels of age and wear which will be detailed. All were read and handled by children and thus show expected handling wear. All have interior pages which are browned at the edges, looking overall with an aged paper look, that is, the interior pages are not white as they would have been originally. All have an old comic book smell, not bad, but there if you go sniffing. Many have a child's name or initial noticeably written on the front cover in ink or crayon (and a few have more writing on the cover). For many the interior "connect the dots" illustration has been done or the interior coloring page has been colored.

The Magic Fountain comic is an acceptable reading copy (we say this largely because part of one page has been cut out as will be detailed below), but does have a child's first name written prominently in crayon on the front cover with the letter initial of this name also written nearby in blue ink pen (see image). The inside front cover connect the dots picture has been done in pencil with the animal figure also colored in in pencil and a different child's name and last name initial written above this in cursive in pencil. However, the inside back cover coloring picture is clean/has not been done or colored. The comic does have usual age reading use/wear. On the front cover in particular there is a vertical band along the right side edge about 1/2 inch in width that is slightly discolored/lighter than the other coloring on the cover. This does not appear to be water damage as there is no indication of damage on the reverse side/inside front cover, so we don't know why this is there. Otherwise the front cover has usual handling wear including wrinkling, creasing, impressed lines (as if somewhat put another paper on top of the comic and did something on that paper), a vertical crease line, wear along the top and bottom edges including tiny tears/chipping/rubbed wear to white/etc., wear/paper wear along the bound/stapled edge, crease/cracking lines in the front colors, etc. The back cover has an aged/slightly dirty look with similar handling, wrinkling, etc. wear. Also on the back cover there are four pencil check marks next to four of the comic titles.

The inside pages are browned, several have some folding at the top or bottom right corners, and a number have some small tears/chips -- an about 3/4 inch vertical tear from the bottom edge in the middle bottom of the first comic page and on page 23 (with this page also having a second smaller tear), an about 1/4 inch similar tear in the same spot on page 7, a tiny triangular chip along the bottom edge with a little dark spot/staining on page 9, and a tiny triangular chip along the right side edge near the bottom on page 15. However, the most important interior issue is that someone cut into the final page of the story, page 25, cuting out what we are guessing was part of the drawing showing the prince and princess getting married. You can read the last page fine (there's no cutting in the words here), but the figures of the prince and princess have been cut out. This also affects the reverse side which is the first page of a 5 page illustrated comic of The Straw, The Coal and The Bean, and here the cutting has taken out some of the words as well as illustration. After this story, this copy includes a one page illustration and telling of the nursery rhyme Where, O Where, with the reverse side illustrating The Animal World, The Squirrel.

This collectible comic book measures about 6 15/16 x 10 3/16 inches in size. Given that this is an old or vintage comic book, we do not know what kind of ink was used in the printing (and particularly, whether any lead based inks were used). As such, we will only sell this comic to adult collectors, it should be handled with care, and it should not be given to/handled by children due to concerns with lead exposure.

1508

Classics Illustrated Jr. The Three Fairies Comic Book No. 537 A 1st Ed Vintage Classics Illustrated Junior comic book published by Famous Authors, Ltd., which was a division of Gilberton Company, Inc. or Gilberton Publications. This is The Three Fairies comic book, No. 537 (Number 537), with 15 cents price on cover, dated on the inside April 1957. We think this is a first edition of this comic. The listing on the back cover of other comic books available in the series ends with the next comic in this series, No. 538 Silly Hans (HRN #538). But on half of the inside front cover there is an ad announcing, "Coming Next Month, Silly Hans" with a description of that comic. So we believe that the publisher added comic No. 538 Silly Hans to the list on the back cover even though this was a first edition of The Three Fairies, comic No. 537. This book is not the new reprint (there is no UPC block on this book). Please note that we have two copies of this The Three Fairies comic and are listing each separately as "A" and "B".

This The Three Fairies comic is a very good/good copy overall, but does have a child's first name written prominently on the cover in crayon with the first letter initial also written nearby in blue ink pen (see image). The connect the dots picture on half of the inside front cover has been completed in pencil (and you can see the strong reverse imprint from the first letter initial written hard on the reverse/front cover side). The coloring page on the inside back cover has been partially colored in crayon on the lady's clothing with a bit on her face and the water (probably about 10-15% of the picture has been colored at most). The comic does have usual age reading use/wear including on the front cover the impressions from the connect the dots picture done on the reverse side, impressions from other writing/dots/lines (a piece of paper must have been placed on top of this comic and a good bit of writing was done on that paper, you only see this when you look at an angle in bright light but it is there), general wrinkling/creasing/handling wear, bending/chipping wear along the top, bottom and right side edges, wear/paper wear along the left bound/stapled edge, several diagonal corner creases in the upper right corner, corner tip wear/chipping on both right corners, etc. The back cover is overall slightly dirty with several round stain spots, and similar creasing, wrinkling, handling wear, etc. You can see pink on the back cover which appears to be crayon bleed from the coloring done on the inside back cover. The inside pages are clean but browned, with many having pin holes and small holes in the paper (we believe this is from how the paper was made/handled in printing). This copy includes two pages after the story illustrating and telling Aesop's Fables The Ant and the Dove, followed by a page illustrating and telling the Rub-A-Dub-Dub nursery rhyme, with an illustrated page The Animal World, The Flamingo on the reverse side.

For many the interior "connect the dots" illustration has been done or the interior coloring page has been colored.

This The Three Fairies comic is a good copy overall (we would judge copy "A" to be in better condition), but does have writing on the cover in two separate spots in blue pen ink. Near the bottom front cover appears a child's full name and below the comic title in the center this name was written prominently again but then lined out with several horizontal lines (see image). The connect the dots picture on the inside front cover has been completed in pen with some lighter pen line coloring. The coloring page on the inside back cover has been partially colored in crayon on the lady's clothing and arms with additional coloring on the water (probably about 15-20% of the picture has been colored at most). The comic does have usual age reading use/wear including on the front cover a vertical slightly slanted fold line going down the full cover near the right side, the impressions from the connect the dots picture done on the reverse side, general wrinkling/creasing/handling wear, scuffing/paper wear to white/wrinkling/chipping along the top edge, line cracking wear/other paper wear along the left bound/stapled edge, several diagonal corner creases in the upper right corner, corner tip wear/chipping on both right corners, scuffing wear and crease/cracking lines in the front colors, etc. The back cover is overall slightly dirty with lines and impressed raised lines, and similar creasing, wrinkling, handling wear, etc. The inside pages are clean but browned, with the last comic page having two vertical tears along the bottom edge (1/2 inch and 1 inch in length). This copy includes two pages after the story illustrating and telling Aesop's Fables The Ant and the Dove, followed by a page illustrating and telling the Rub-A-Dub-Dub nursery rhyme, with an illustrated page The Animal World, The Flamingo on the reverse side.

1510

Classics Illustrated Jr. The Enchanted Fish Comic Book No. 539 1st Ed Vintage Classics Illustrated Junior comic book published by Famous Authors, Ltd., which was a division of Gilberton Company, Inc. or Gilberton Publications. This is The Enchanted Fish comic book, No. 539 (Number 539), with 15 cents price on cover, dated on the inside June 1957. We think this is a first edition of this comic. The listing on the back cover of other comic books available in the series ends with the next comic in this series, No. 540 The Tinder-Box (HRN #540). But on half of the inside front cover there is an ad announcing, "Coming Next Month, The Tinder-Box" with a description of that comic. So we believe that the publisher added comic No. 540 The Tinder-Box to the list on the back cover even though this was a first edition of The Enchanted Fish, comic No. 539. This book is not a new reprint (there is no UPC block on this book).

All the Classics Illustrated and Classics Illustrated Junior comic books we are listing came out of the same home where they were purchased as new items for their children in the 1950's and 1960's, so these are not recent reprints. The Classics Illustrated Junior comic books are generally in good/very good or acceptable reading condition but are definitely not mint, showing varying levels of age and wear which will be detailed. All were read and handled by children and thus show expected handling wear. All have interior pages which are browned at the edges, looking overall with an aged paper look, that is, the interior pages are not white as they would have been originally. All have an old comic book smell, not bad, but there if you go sniffing. Many have a child's name or initial noticeably written on the front cover in ink or crayon (and a few have more writing on the cover). For many the interior "connect the dots" illustration has been done or the interior coloring page has been colored.

This The Enchanted Fish comic is a good copy overall, but does have a child's first name written prominently on the cover in crayon with the first letter initial also written nearby in blue ink pen (see image). The connect the dots picture on half of the inside front cover has been completed in pencil. The coloring page on the inside back cover has been partially colored in pencil in a scribbling fashion (not always within the lines) mainly on the lady and dog, with a line drawing of the sun added to the picture and another long scribbled/curvy line/writing (probably about 40%+ of the picture has been colored). The comic does have usual age reading use/wear including on the front cover the impressions from the connect the dots picture done on the reverse side, general wrinkling/creasing/handling wear, bending/chipping wear/small tears along the top, bottom and right side edges, a lot of wear/paper wear/paper tearing along the left bound/stapled edge, a 5/8 inch long break along the bound side starting at the bottom edge, several small diagonal corner creases in the upper right corner, corner tip wear/chipping on both right corners, scuffing wear and crease/cracking lines in the front colors, etc. The back cover is overall somewhat dirty with similar creasing, wrinkling, handling wear, etc. You can see some impressions on the back cover from the pencil coloring on the inside back cover. The inside pages are clean but browned, with many having pin holes and small holes in the paper (we believe this is from how the paper was made/handled in printing). This copy includes two pages after the story illustrating and telling Aesop's Fables The Four Oxen and the Lion, followed by a page illustrating and telling The Queen of Hearts nursery rhyme, with an illustrated page The Animal World, The Armadillo on the reverse side.

This collectible comic book measures about 7 x 10 1/4 inches in size. Given that this is an old or vintage comic book, we do not know what kind of ink was used in the printing (and particularly, whether any lead based inks were used). As such, we will only sell this comic to adult collectors, it should be handled with care, and it should not be given to/handled by children due to concerns with lead exposure.

This is The Tinder-Box comic book, No. 540 (Number 540), with 15 cents price on cover, dated on the inside July 1957.

This book is not the new reprint (there is no UPC block on this book).

For many the interior "connect the dots" illustration has been done or the interior coloring page has been colored.

This The Tinder-Box comic is a good copy overall, but does have a lot of writing on the cover all in the same general location. Basically around the bottom of the Classics Illustrated box a child's full name was written in blue pen ink, next to which some large capital letters were written in crayon with these then crossed out in crayon and multiple lines of blue ink (see image). The connect the dots picture on the inside front cover and the coloring page on the inside back cover are clean, they have not been done or colored. We note that the front cover seems to fall slightly short of covering the inside pages along the right edge as you can see a thin vertical area (under 1/16 inch in width) of the inner pages when looking at the cover. The comic does have usual age reading use/wear including on the front cover a strong diagonal fold line near the bottom right corner, general wrinkling/creasing/handling, a 3/8 inch tear from the right side edge near the title, fold lines/tip chipping/wear in both right corners, wear/creasing/paper wear along the left bound/stapled edge, wrinkling/chipping/paper wear along the top and bottom edges, impressed lines, scuffing wear and crease/cracking lines in the front colors, etc. The back cover is overall slightly dirty with similar creasing, wrinkling, handling wear, etc. The inside pages are clean but browned, with some having pin holes and small holes (we believe this is from how the paper was made/handled in printing), corner tip bending, a bit of scuffing/dirt, etc. This copy includes two pages after the story illustrating and telling Aesop's Fables The Lioness and her Family, followed by a page illustrating and telling the Hickety, Pickety nursery rhyme, with an illustrated page The Animal World, The Kinkajou (an animal that belongs to the same family as the raccoon and the Panda and lives in South America) on the reverse side.

1512

Classics Illustrated Jr: The House in the Woods Comic Book No. 543 Vintage Classics Illustrated Junior comic book published by Famous Authors, Ltd., which was a division of Gilberton Company, Inc. or Gilberton Publications. This is The House in the Woods comic book, No. 543 (Number 543), with 15 cents price on cover. This comic does not show a date on the bottom inside cover as many of the others do. It is not a first edition as the listing on the back cover of other comic books available in the series ends with No. 556 The Elf Mound (HRN #556). This book is not the new reprint (there is no UPC block on this book).

All the Classics Illustrated and Classics Illustrated Junior comic books we are listing came out of the same home where they were purchased as new items for their children in the 1950's and 1960's, so these are not recent reprints.

Many have a child's name or initial noticeably written on the front cover in ink or crayon (and a few have more writing on the cover). For many the interior "connect the dots" illustration has been done or the interior coloring page has been colored.

This The House in the Woods comic is a very nice copy overall, and one of the better condition ones we are listing, but does have a light/partial capital letter of a child's first name prominently written in crayon on the front cover under the title (see image). The connect the dots picture on the inside front cover has been lightly done in pencil (you don't see any indication of this on the front cover as with some of the other comics where this has been done in heavy pencil). The coloring page on the inside back cover is clean/has not been colored. The comic does have some of the usual age reading use/wear but less of it and not objectionable. You can see in the image that the cover as printed was slightly off with the color not going all the way to the top edge (there is a band of uncolored paper at the top of the front cover). There is handling wear to the cover with some light creasing/wrinkling, creases to white along the bound/stapled edge with other paper wear to this edge, corner fold line creasing in the lower right corner, wear/tip bending/chipping to the both right corners, wear/slight bending along the top and bottom edges, etc. The back cover has a largely clean look, with some evidence of handling particularly with bending/creasing along the top edge, but the back cover is very nice overall. The inside pages are clean with some having folding in the lower right corner and some pin holes/small holes in some pages (we believe this is from how the paper was made/handled in printing). This copy includes two pages after the story illustrating and telling Aesop's Fables The Treasure in the Vineyard, followed by one page illustrating and telling the nursery rhyme The Broom, The Shovel, The Poker and the Tongs, with an illustrated page The Animal World, The Skunk on the reverse side.

This collectible comic book measures about 6 7/8 x 10 1/4 inches in size. Given that this is an old or vintage comic book, we do not know what kind of ink was used in the printing (and particularly, whether any lead based inks were used). As such, we will only sell this comic to adult collectors, it should be handled with care, and it should not be given to/handled by children due to concerns with lead exposure.
