NotesEdit

  • First Marvel Comic published.
  • Ka-Zar first appeared in October 1936 in a Manvis Publishing Company pulp magazine called Ka-Zar. Two more issues of the magazine were published (in January and June 1937) and Ka-Zar did not appear until "Marvel Comics #1".
  • The Angel story in this issue mimics much of the plot of The Saint in New York by Leslie Charteris.
  • The first page of this issue shows a "funnies" page named "Now I'll Tell One!".
  • First 8 pages of "The Sub-Mariner"-story are reprinted in color from Motion Picture Funnies Weekly #1.
  • The stories of this issue are reprinted in other comics and books, see references for more info.[2]

This comic is reprinted in the comic: Marvel Masterworks Vol 1 36



TriviaEdit

  • This issue is sometimes referred to as "Marvel Mystery Comics #1", as the next series' storyline is in Marvel Mystery Comics #2.
  • Some copies of this issue will have a blackened Oct. on the cover and instead have Nov. in its place. This is due to Timely selling out with over 80,000 issues sold in with the first printing in 1939. This prompted Timely to print a second printing with the Nov. date added.
  • This comic is referenced throughout The Venture Bros. Season 4 premiere "Blood of the Father, Heart of Steel", where the mint-conditioned comic's loss in value as the Venture family uses it is a recurring joke.
