Mickey Rooney Reads Comics!

Frequent Hey Kids! contributor Rick Phillips sent me this amazing photo of Mickey Rooney, circa 1940, reading an issue of Fawcett's tabloid-sized Master Comics series, which the publisher then smartly used in an ad for the book itself.

What a find, thanks Rick!

(Assuming he hadn't paid for the pose, for just that purpose!)

Cool though! Thanks, Rick & Rob!

(Treasuries... yum...)

Did the comics get smaller, or was Mickey Rooney already small? ;)

Master Comics was oversized, making the diminutive Mr. Rooney look that much smaller!

IIRC, Master Comics went to normal size sometime around #8 or so.
