So I'm reading the latest Back Issue #61 which covers the treasury-size magazines DC and Marvel produced in the 70s and 80s (Superman vs Spider-Man, Superman vs Muhammed Ali etc) and noticed it made no mention to what I believe was the first in that format-Wham-O Giant Comics. I once owned a copy but I have no clue whatever became of it
Released in 1967 by the Wham-O toy company, it did appear on some newstands priced at 98 cents for 52 color pages in a whopping 21x14 size-about twice the size of a treasury. Alas #1 would be it's only issue. Inside you would find these contributors:
Wally Wood-a Radion and a Goody Bumpkin story totaling 5 pages
Lou Fine- a 2 page Tor story (no relation to Kubert's character
Ernie Colon- a 2 page story
Other contributors included Warren Tufts,Andre Leblanc,John Stanley,Marvin Stein and others whose names I don't recognize.
Who here remembers this book or actually still owns it?
