Fantastic, Funny Emergency Doctor!!

Ermmmm, 5 out of 10 for the title...

Going through my collection I realise how few comics starting with 'E' I have, 'Emergency Doctor' being the only one! I'll have to remedy that in the future.I don't know what it is about the old Charlton covers, but they always looked a bit bland to me, especially when compared to other companies cover artwork. The level of detail isn't too bad but it's like there's something missing. Maybe it was the in-house artists that Charlton employed. 

Emergency Doctor #1 - Summer 1963 - Charlton
The indicia suggests that this was to be a 4-issue-a-year series
but as it turns out  this was the only issue  published.

Famous Funnies #163 - February 1948 - Famous Funnies Inc.
The series started in 1934 and lasted until the mid 1950's.
Probably the most famous character in it's pages was Buck Rogers.
This is my oldest copy, sadly somebody drew in pencil on the
front cover!!!

Fantastic Four #20 - November 1963 - Marvel.
The long - running title exploded onto the comics scene in
November 1961 and the characters are still popular today.
This is my earliest FF issue, a long while ago I did own
issue #2 but sold it. Damn!!!!!
