Rather eye opening how much is not dominated by super heroes.

I have the Fighting Yank one. Some gorgeous Jerry Robinson and Mort Meskin artwork on the interiors though their drawings of the hero were a little off model compared to the cover.

Thoughts:

1)  Wow, a lot of Archie knock-offs!

2)  There's something wrong with all of these covers.  They make the comics look fun.  Aren't covers supposed to make the contents look like a grim, painful slog?

"Well, the comicbook industry in 1948 was sure not stingy with the cheesecake"

Thanks to a certain Frederick Wertham, they would be in a few years.
