Four Color Comics (2nd Series)

 FCC2   (Dell, 1941-1962)

™ and © Dell Publishing Co.

Published weekly from 1941 until 1962, Dell’s Four Color Comics had more issues published than any other American comic—some 1354 in all. During its decades-long run, it featured dozens of comic icons including Uncle Scrooge, Prince Valiant, Bozo the Clown, Bugs Bunny, Tarzan, Flash Gordon, and countless others.

Despite its singular place in comics history, many comic readers have never heard the name “Four Color Comics.” Why? Because virtually every issue ran under the name of the main character—the inscription “Four Color Comics” only appeared in the title’s indicia. This was doubly confusing to readers. A cover reading, say “Popeye” with an issue number of #145, naturally left readers wondering where Popeye #1–144 had gone.

The complete list of Four Color Comics that appears here was generously donated by Maggie Thompson of CBG.
