How about we discuss New Funnies comics, extraordinary compared to other Golden Age comic book arrangement as I would like to think.
New Funnies is a Golden Age comic book arrangement that began off just called The Funnies. With issue No. 64 (in 1942), the comic started concentrating on Walter Lantz characters, for example, Andy Panda and Oswald the Rabbit. With issue No. 65, it was renamed New Funnies.

Woody Woodpecker was likewise one of the Lantz characters who showed up in the book. He was such another character at the time, he was a visitor star in the Oswald the Rabbit stories for a year or two preceding he got his own comic strip in New Funnies. At to begin with, Woody’s strip was just a single page. With issue No. 87, he started getting a more drawn out strip. Obviously, as time went on, Woody Woodpecker progressed toward becoming Walter Lantz’ greatest star and was included on most New Funnies covers from the mid-1940s until the point that it was scratched off in the mid 1960s.

New Funnies is an awesome arrangement. Not exclusively are issues genuinely simple to discover – something amazing for a Golden Age comic book arrangement – however many issues are not very costly. Obviously, the most looked for after issues are the soonest issues from the time the book changed from its initial arrangement to including the Lantz characters. The most punctual Lantz-driven issues can cost several dollars in close mint condition. A few issues that are features incorporate issue No. 65 (the principal issue of New Funnies), No. 69 (decent Halloween cover with Andy Panda, Raggedy Ann, and Felix the Cat), No. 89 and No. 101 (both World War II war bond covers).
As I would see it, a portion of the best covers are the ones that element three awesome Lantz characters together: Woody Woodpecker, Andy Panda and Charlie Chicken, a character who just showed up in a couple of kid’s shows yet was included in the comics from the 1940s to the 1970s. He’s one of those overlooked characters who never got expansive scale distinction. Charlie Chicken showed up in two Andy Panda kid’s shows in the 1940s: Andy Panda’s Victory Garden and Meatless Tuesday. Strangely, he battled Andy in the two kid’s shows. They pursued each other around Andy’s ranch. I call this odd in light of the fact that in New Funnies (and Andy Panda’s own arrangement) Charlie was Andy Panda’s buddy.
Charlie first showed up in print in New Funnies No. 79 as a little chicken. To the extent I can tell from my exploration (I don’t possess every one of the issues), Charlie was a full-developed chicken by his next comic book appearance. He was one of the stars in New Funnies for a considerable length of time, notwithstanding getting his own comic strip in the arrangement.
Indeed, on the off chance that you are a fanatic of Golden Age kid’s shows, Golden Age comic books or the Walter Lantz characters, I suggest getting some old New Funnies issues by means of online comic book stores or eBay. You won’t be frustrated in the costs or nature of the stories. Additionally, we have to keep the exemplary Golden Age characters alive!
