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)

 

11/22/2020 8:40 am  #310


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

Correct to both. National may have been called Detective at the time (not entirely certain), but All-American was definitely separately, though closely connected

Those are correct. In the case of #15, while there was Flash Comics, it had other features such as Hawkman, so Flash only left for a time when his true solo title, All-Flash #1 came out.

Re: General Comics Trivia

Those are correct. IIRC the original title for All-Flash was in fact All-Flash Quarterly, so for anyone who knew that, it was a pretty good tip-off.
