NotesI really like this first edition. I trust that darkmark will not be offended by my adjustments to his great scan. I've straitened a few pages and have also enriched the colors. If what I've done is against the rules of this site, I then apologize in advance. Hopefully, you and darkmark will approve. If not, then I will not be making adjustments to your comics again.

C'mon, how can you pass up Jack Kirby art on Captain Marvel?
   By Musical-Ghost
Hi! I noticed that it's mentioned that there is a page sequence problem with the DC Comics Archive edition. This fiche version also places Billy Batson's activity page after the Saturn story. So if the Archive is wrong, so is this version. By the way, where is the inside back cover advertising the Captain Marvel serial? Is there an inside front or back for this comic at all?
