Policy Complications

At this point, the Magic Crystal of History series is an actual adventure series--the historical vignettes won't come until later. Is it worth cataloging the series?Jim in NYC (talk) 19:49, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

Any information about the earliest DC comics is appreciated. There are very few data extant - so, yes, put them in. Also, if the leaked rumors about Morrison´s Multiversity finale bear any semblance to the facts (Jack Woods being explicitly mentioned), these stories will be included into the DC canon. --Lucien61 (talk) 20:21, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
Apparently not, since all the synopses I added have been deleted.Jim in NYC (talk) 16:08, August 20, 2014 (UTC)
That might not be a "canonicity" issue so much as a "plagiarism" thing. The opening sentences of those synopses are identical to the ones appearing in "Mike's Amazing World." Follow-on sentences look original, and it might be possible to salvage the synopses with some judicious rephrasing. Or not, I can't say. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 10:59, October 26, 2015 (UTC)
OK, I'll try it again.Jim in NYC (talk) 18:08, January 8, 2016 (UTC)
'Tis done. Added synopses for Jack Woods, Magic Crystal of History, Wing Brady, Ivanhoe, Buckskin Jim, and 2023 Super Police, a character list for 2023 Super Police, and a couple of supporting characters for Jack Woods, Wing Brady, and Ivanhoe. Someone (possibly me, possibly someone else) should create a page for Rex Carson, the main character of 2023 Super Police.Jim in NYC (talk) 21:32, January 8, 2016 (UTC)

Technical Issue

The edit page lists only 20 stories, but the display page TOC has 34. This is the opposite problem from the one in New Fun #2, where the edit page has MORE stories than the display page. Whuh? How? Huh? Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 10:59, October 26, 2015 (UTC)

Missing Stories (Maybe?)

This picture (https://i.imgur.com/OswoptQ.png) is taken directly from New Fun Comics #1, and, if you look under the "In This Issue of New FUN" column, shows 29 indexes for (I'm assuming) 32 pages. It looks like we are missing plenty of stories as well as have plenty of storys that do not appear in the story(?). The Oswald the Rabbit story isnt mentioned there, but I see it in the pages I have. I only have 14 pages though (Who have been badly photographed or have been photographed with papers covering them). So do with that what you will.

Nevermind! Using something called research, I see that I was wrong about the missing storys.

Little by Little...

Just recently found the Barry O'Neill and Sandra pages for this issue. Will add synopses for both.Jim in NYC (talk) 17:46, September 21, 2016 (UTC)


2023 Super Police

Making edits to the 2023 material. The hero's name is Rex Cosmos, not Carson, as I originally thought--whoever edited the synopsis missed one. The Professor and Joan's last name, however, is indeed *Shanley*, not Stanley.Jim in NYC (talk) 16:44, October 10, 2016 (UTC)

Eureka! I have found it! Shanley's assistant (the man who telephones Joan in this issue) has a last name: Drut (checked and made sure that that was a legitimate last name in the 1930s). I'm adding him to the character list in #1, #2, and #5 (the only three issues that I've verified his appearance).Jim in NYC (talk) 19:47, March 21, 2017 (UTC)
