True Comics - Issue 10 (1950)

"True Comics was begun in 1941 to 'counteract the wild, rowdy superhero comics,' according to comics historian Ron Goulart (The Comic Book Reader's Companion, HarperPerennial, 1993). The editors were David Marke, a historian, and later Elliot Caplin, a prolific comics writer. True Comics, it could be said, sparked a small genre of non-fiction newsstand comics.

You can actually order the "Grenfell Issue #10 " for as low as $36 US dollars.. Expect to pay $200 US for a copy in mint-condition. See http://www.milehighcomics.com

The original book "Adrift on an Ice Pan", by Wilfred Thomason Grenfell, was first published in 1909 by Houghton Mifflin Company. The unabridged audio edition of Adrift on an Ice Pan, narrated by Chris Brookes, Jay Roberts and Janis Spence, is available from Rattling Books.
