Comic Book Cover For Jack-in-the-Box Comics #12
Jack-in-the-Box Comics #12 (2 of 5)
   By dwilt
At least 4 pages missing, the last page of "Squat Car Squad," the first page of "How to Make a Machine Gun," and the whole story "Bumbling the Bee" (2 pgs). Also it's interesting to note that two of these features (Tubby Pig and Squat Car Squad) were Marvel/Timely comic strips. Both strips contain material that indicates they were done during World War II and were probably sold to Charlton as excess inventory, seeing print in December 1946.
Additional Information
PublicationDecember 1946 | Price: 0.10 USD | Pages: 1 | Frequency: bi-monthly
NotesGiven the presence of several Timely comic strips in this issue, I wonder if the cover is also a Timely "left-over" from Krazy Krow Comics?
FeaturingKrazy Krow ?
ContentGenre: Anthropomorphic-funny Animals

Comic Story"I think we eluded the wolf's trap!" (7 pages)
FeaturingTubby Pig
ContentGenre: Humor; Anthropomorphic-funny Animals
NotesThis story mentions a "Black Market" which was a wartime concept (due to rationing). The fact that this appears in a comic dated December 1946 suggests it was left-over inventory, probably from Timely/Marvel comics, where the character had also appeared.

Comic Story"What's Super Rabbit got that I ain't got?" (7 pages)
FeaturingSquat Car Squad
CreditsPencils: Joe Beck | Inks: Joe Beck?
ContentGenre: Humor
NotesThe artwork here has a considerably finer line than Beck's mid-'40s work on Chesler titles, many of which were inked by Otto Eppers. Bails credits Beck with both pen/ink on this feature. The reference to "Super Rabbit" and a "Buy Bonds" sign in one panel suggest (a) this was originally intended for Timely/Marvel ("Squat Car Squad" appeared in Joker and Gay Comics for that publisher), and (b) that it is old inventory (left over from war-time).
