A coverless paper copy of Whiz Comics #7 is going up now! I've been meaning to scan this one for a LONG time because it is so brittle. (Little more than a stack of paper really.) However, because of it being brittle, I've put it off, knowing that it would take longer than usual. All pages are readable, but there is damage to the artwork in the last two stories (Dr. Voodoo and Ibis). I've included the fiche copies of those stories, as well as the IFC and IBC. Front and back covers are from Heritage.

Comment: And thanks for being brave enough to do it. Seriously--I've choked when faced with books like this, even when the generous owner was OK with whatever happened.

Comment: Like the other commentators said, thanks for scanning this. I don't know how most contributors scan their comics, so at the risk of saying something you may already know, there are scanner apps for tablets and smartphones. They may be a better option for extremely fragile books than a regular scanner. Basically you use your phone or tablet's cameras to create the scan. However, usually with a little editing, the end result isn't just a photo of the page, it's the same quality as if you used a scanner. Since some of these apps compensate for page curve, the big advantage is that you don't have to press comics down on a scanner bed.
