The mag behind Dime Mystery Magazine appears to me to be a duplicate of Thrilling Detective from below:

Sigh... I think I ran into a standstill with locating the remaining comic book covers. The fragments I have to go on are hard to make out, and I am not sure if Mike's Amazing World even has the covers I am looking for.

Is there any other site with a gallery like that, which includes the year and month? MAZ is a great site, but I noticed it does miss a few books. Without another such resource, it really is a longshot to find those remaining covers. Of course, they still may be on the site, but I may not picking up on something.

How about this one for #2?
The font is right but I can't confirm a year or even a publisher.

Nice job on both the detective and spirit man... I knew it was spirit man but I still couldn't find it.

Here's the detective mag in the lower LH corner

Doug, that "Spiritman" was driving me crazy! I was sure that was the title, yet I couldn't find it on the sites I checked, even with Google image search. Cool!

Rick, another great find!

On the next shelf up from Ranch Romances and two to the left.



And the magazine directly to the right of this one is definitely Love Book Magazine either July or August 1945; I just don't have images for those two months but the font is a match.

I was able to identify the title of a few joke magazines, and one of the romance mags, but unfortunately couldn't locate the covers online. 

I am still trying to figure out the last of the comic covers, too. Having only a fragment to work from is probably a near impossible task, but I figure we've  come this far...

These are great!  Most (almost all) are books Iíve never seen before. Some titles I hadnít even heard of.

YAYY!!! I found another cover (it's #13 on the fragment chart I made from the previous page of the thread):

I mentioned before that Ziggy Pig made a number of comic appearances, and it seems the same is true for Super Rabbit and the other Timely Comics cartoon animals. Crazy to see so many spin-off titles featuring that gang!

This appears to be #14 on the chart I made of cover fragments. It matches up to some of the visible elements pretty well, but I am not 100% certain about it. The month/year would be within the right range, too.

FULL-SIZE picture: HERE!


Well, at least as far as the comics covers, I think I have taken it as far as i can. There is at least one comic cover on the floor level I can't identify, and a few hidden in the back rows. If anyone else still wants to try and figure out what is left, please do so.

Also, if anyone finds anymore of the romance, westerns, and other pulp covers, feel free to share those, too. There were at least a couple I did identify by name, but I couldn't find a cover image online.

Otherwise, I think this is the most complete the picture will get as far as finding the covers in the photo.

Thanks for everyone who contributed in locating and posting the covers!!

I think the next challenge should be to see if we can find digital copies of these comics and magazines. We could put them in a shared folder. After looking at these covers, I want to read all of them.

That site you shared before, Neil, has a good amount of scanned comics from the Golden-Age (including some of the comics in this thread):


Comic Books Plus



Thanks for sharing it, by the way. I had been on the site years ago, but forgot about it.
