Here is a much-used comic book giving all 40 of its pages to the presentation of fables. The edges show a good deal of wear, portions of pages are taped back together, and one middle page (15-16) is inserted backwards. I put question marks after the names of the author and illustrator because the last letters of their names are no longer on the cover, if they ever were. Only the covers are in color here. Each fable gets one or two pages. The two exceptions I noted are CW, which gets three pages (23-25), and Frailty, Thy Name Is Woman! (The Widow of Ephesus), which gets four pages (32-35). The fable on the marriage of the sun involves the supposed marriage of the sun and moon at an eclipse (13). The cat woman eats the mouse in rather gross fashion (25). The English suffers once or twice, as in The young wife was won't having an old man make love to her (36). The frozen snake is picked up by a woman instead of the usual man. The lions are unsuccessfully portrayed. What a great ephemeral find!
