Comment: Thanks to JVJ and narfstar for this book! Jack Cole cover and lead story - hooray! I only wish the scans had been done larger. The Cole story in particular has much detail, and I'm old and my eyesight ain't what it used to be. I really love to see these early Centaur comics -- and the early Fox comics too! Thanks again, Bob (Public Enemy #1)

Comment: WOW! Thank you so much for this great, rare comic. The Jack Cole cover and interior story is the best of his Centaur work that I've seen. To celebrate, I've posted a short article about Jack Cole's Centaur years at my Cole's Comics blog.
