A More Fun New Year

May you have a Happy New Year, and celebrate today however you will...but don't get caught like Spike Spalding did on this cover to More Fun Comics #17 (January, 1937) by Vin Sullivan.

Spike was an ordinary kid of the time who got into extraordinary trouble, including being mistaken for the young king (Philip) of Patrania, leading to Spike being kidnapped by the evil Count Alex.

Spike appeared starting in New Fun #3 (April, 1935) up to More Fun Comics #30 (March-April, 1938), all predating the first appearance of Superman in Action Comics.
