Editing Victor Fox ?
Notes Overstreet lists two 1946 issues, #1 and #1-Ribtickler. Since one of the two known sets of contents for this issue is a rebound Ribtickler, this issue would match #1-Ribtickler. But it could also match the other #1 as the other known content is a rebinding of the 1944 issue of this series. However, a separate 1946 issue under a different cover is believed to exist, although while its cover has been seen its contents including the publication date have not been verified. Indicia (on inside front cover): Entire contents copyrighted 1946 by Fox Feature Syndicate, Inc., New York, N. Y. Printed in U.S.A. This is the only known issue to bear both the "Great Comic Library / World's Greatest Comics" back cover (usually seen on issues published by Wm. H. Wise such as the 1944 issue of this series) and the winking foxhead logo. While there is no "published by" statement in the indicia, the copyright statement and brand logo make it extremely likely that Fox Feature Syndicate, Inc. was the publisher.
