Cover Date: February 1935
Cover Price: US $0.10

Issue Tagline: None.

Format: Black & White; Standard Comic Issue; 32 pages

Synopsis:
Anthology of unrelated comic strips.

Reprinted/Collected in:
The Big Book of Fun Comics (1935) #1

Notes:
Not really a "standard" comic issue, but an over-sized 10X15-inch issue with a color exterior and b/w interior. An anthology of comic strips, it has perhaps greater commonality with the so-called "British comic" than with US "comic books" of today.

Though not strictly published by DC, it is considered to be the "first DC comic" because it was the first book from the company that would become DC.
This was the first American comic book in which 100% of the material was original to that issue.
In the light of the 2006 return of (the Walt Disney version of) Oswald the Rabbit to The Walt Disney Company, this is, retroactively, the home of the first Disney comic. Or, to put it more precisely, this is the home of the first comic to feature a Disney character. The particular design of the rabbit (with mostly black fur) was the definitive Walt Disney/Ub Iwerks version of the character, despite the fact that the Universal/Walter Lantz version (that is, predominately white fur) was the one that, in February of 1935, was current in cinemas.

Notes:
The artist for the New Comics run is somewhat in doubt. Several sources suggest it's Al Stahl, while others indicate writer Lindermayer was also the artist.
When published, this story featured a character owned by Universal Pictures. As of 2006, it features a character owned by The Walt Disney Company. As things stand now, therefore, this is the first story to use a Disney character, although neither Walt himself nor his company had any part in making it—other than creating the character. One would imagine that if the story were to ever be republished, Disney would now have to okay it.
