General note

Title and publisher appear to vary. Early issues published by National Allied Publications under the title New fun: The big comic magazine and More fun. "Sergeant O'Malley of the Red Coat Patrol" is a recurring feature in the series.

General note

Holdings: no. 46 (August 1939); [no. 48?] ([November 1939?]); [no. 49?] ([1940?]); [no. 58?] ([August 194-?]); and [no. 63] ([194-?])

General note

In the absence of the original covers, the date of publication and numbering of some issues is ambiguous. Publishing information in the finding aid has thus been taken from documentation accompanying the Lund Comics Collection's copies and the "Sergeant O'Malley of the Red Coat Patrol" entry in the Babblings about DC Comics Web site, available online at (accessed 8 January 2016).

General note

The O'Malley stories are noteworthy for their portrayal of Native people. Although O'Malley is often assisted in his duties by a Native associate, Black Hawk, depictions of First Nations characters reflect stereotypes prevalent in the popular culture of the day.
