DC Comics’ Famous First Edition: New Fun #1 reprints the first comic book from 1935 to feature all-original material – as opposed to newspaper reprints – from National Allied Publications, Inc., the company that eventually became DC Comics. The stories run from gangster tales, action stories, historical adventures, science fantasy, and more. One adapts Sir Walter Scott’s medieval tale Ivanhoe while Clem Gretta’s “Don Drake on the Planet Saro” resembles Flash Gordon. Naturally, several different Westerns offer standard adventure tales and comedies using the genre. Clem Gretta and Ken Fitch’s “2023 Super-Police” concludes the comic book with a fun sci-fi story featuring a combination submarine/airplane. Like all the Golden Age comic books, this one features several text pages including a feature about the Buck Rogers radio show, a look at some Western films, a brief popular science article, one about philately, and diagrams for building a model airplane and a model of Hendrick (Henry) Hudson’s Half Moon, the ship he used while searching for the Northwest Passage. Publisher Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson intended the comic book for all readers, so it also includes an article about home economics for girls, reflecting the gendered expectations of the time while demonstrating that comic books were not yet thought of as primarily for boys. Further, Walt Disney’s original character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, appears in some comics running along the bottom of the page.

DC includes several essays with this volume, including one by the late Professor Jerry G. Bails of Wayne State University which was meant to accompany a dc “Millennium Edition” reprint of this book in 2000 that sadly never came to pass. Comic book historian Roy Thomas provides an updated introduction while Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson, granddaughter of Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson, writes a biographical essay about one of DC’s founders. This title underwent several changes over the years, becoming More Fun the Big Comic Magazine and eventually More Fun Comics. Further, while this first issue is tabloid sized similar to the contemporary newspaper comics sections, the publisher would eventually adjust the comic to become the familiar Golden Age size. The reprint similarly captures the larger size of the original comic. More Fun Comics also served as the first appearance of The Spectre in issue nos. 52-53 (1940), Dr. Fate in no. 55, Johnny Quick in no. 71, Green Arrow and Speedy in no. 73, Aquaman in no. 73, and Superboy in no. 101.

DC reprints the full comics from this collection as well as the original advertisements, which are a great resource to cultural historians. The Charles Atlas advertisement will look familiar to readers from any era of comics and it’s remarkable how little it’s changed since 1935. Most admirable of all from an historical standpoint, DC does not shy away from the controversies of the past. Some of these comics and advertisements rely on stereotypes, but DC presents them here in the hopes that readers will learn about how attitudes from the past informed popular culture. They begin the collection with a warning, “The comic material in this volume were produced in a time when racism played a larger role in society and popular culture both consciously and unconsciously. They are unaltered in this collection, with the understanding that they are presented as historical documents” (pg. iv). In doing so, DC has created something that will appeal not just to comic book fans, but serves an invaluable historical purpose as it makes a rare primary source available again both to comic book historians and cultural historians.
