Export and Comic Books Part II

The first post about the comics published by Export Publishing Enterprises Ltd. dealt with their original publications. However most of the comics Export sold were reprints of American comics. Export had contracts with companies such as Fawcett and ACG to print their comics for the Canadian market. There were at least 30 titles with names such as Big Giant Comics, Ibis, Love Diary, Tex Ritter and Zoot Comics.

Here are four of them with front and back covers. Destination Moon is the only pure reprint of a comic that was published in 1950. The rest are Canadian titles with stories from various Amercan comics. None are dated but the first comic has a vendor's date stamp of Aug 1950.
