Ace Comics

 ACEC   (McKay, 1937-1949)

©1943 King Features Syndicate

From 1937 to 1949, a cheerful host named Ace brought readers a collection of some of the most enduring features in comics. Lee Falk’s Phantom, Blondie, the Katzenjammer Kids, Prince Valiant, Barney Google, and many more appeared regularly in these pages. All this was packed into giant-sized issues with almost no ads, for just a single dime.
