3. Where was the Justice League foe Ultraa from?
Earth-Prime. So this meant that according to the comics someone from the real world would travel to Earth-1 to battle the Justice League.

Re: General Comics Trivia

3 is incorrect. While Funnies on Parade is key to the evolution of comics (it preceded the title for the actual answer), it was a one-shot rather than an ongoing series. The other two are correct.

Famous Funnies?
(definitely something with "fun" in the title)

Re: General Comics Trivia

Yes, Famous Funnies was the ongoing series, running from 1934-1955, a very healthy run especially considering that it was often (though not always) just comic strip reprints.

Re: General Comics Trivia

Those are all correct. Some people were fooled by FFF even without the proper cover removed. Once at a secondhand shop the owner bragged that she had lots of copies of Action Comics #1, but were FFF. Hope she hung onto them though because they now have some value even as reprints
