From around 1967 to around 1970, cover-stripped unsold copies of imported American comics returned to distributors Thorpe & Porter
by newsagents for disposal were frequently repackaged as these oddities. Each unnumbered issue of Double Double Comics
consisted of four 32-page comics bound together under a new cover (which frequently had little to do with the actual contents).
Confusingly, the contents of each issue could actually vary even in individual copies, depending on how many unsolds of each issue they had left; the fact that one specific copy of Adventure Double Double Comics
included three issues of Adventure Comics
and one of Superboy
, for instance, did not guarantee that another copy would contain all of the exact same issues!
This copy contains Superman (1939) #s 188, 190, 191 and 196.
