This Treasure Chest comic was originally sourced from The Catholic University of America Archives, as was the current scan on the DCM site. I have cropped, cleaned up and, when possible, enhanced it using some or all of the following: XnView for Windows (great freeware program), MS Paint and Office 2010. When the Archive pages are of poor quality, which averages about 3-4 pages a comic, I have replaced with pages from my collection, providing I have a copy that will not be damaged due to scanning.

Comment: Thanks so much for all your great work upgrading this series. You got me curious enough about these visit the Catholic Archives (where these were originally posted). I discovered that they only posted the comics up until the 1964 issues for copyright concerns. That seemed odd, as I would assume they would be the copyright owners.

Comment: Hi Comicwanderer I also send my thanks for uploading these. Will it be possible that Vol 1+4 will be able to be completed also? I have vol1 1-6 and Vol4 1-13 (I have 1-20 of all the others up to vol18) I didn't go to Catholic school but I still remember prayers and reading of a bible story in my public school in the 60's as one of my favourite times in class. Too bad with all the Religions attending it is now banned. (Loved Church Sunday school too). Tks again Net.
