DC Renews Copyrights on Fawcett Comics

I just learned that DC has renewed the copyright to the following Fawcett comics and have sent legal notice to various websites to have them removed as they are no longer considered in the public domain.  Here is the list of comics according to one of these websites:


  • Captain Marvel Adventures #s 3-6, 46-129, 131-141 and 143-150; 
  • Captain Marvel Jr. #s 29-34, 36-106, 108-117 and 119; 
  • Captain Marvel Story Book #s 1-2; 
  • Fawcetts Funny Animals #s. 31-79;
  • Hoppy the Marvel Bunny #s. 1-15;
  • The Marvel Family #s 1-3, 5-80, 82-89;
  • Mary Marvel Comics #s 1-28;
  • Master Comics #s 61-126, 128-132;
  • Whiz Comics #s 3-6, 64-98, 105-118, 130-153 and 155;
  • Wow Comics #s 36-69


While I am extremely disappointed, I cannot find fault with DC.  They are within their rights as copyright owners to take this action.  Unfortunately for me, it seriously hinders - if not makes impossible - my ability to keep up this fan site.  I really depended on the public domain issues and with the tremendous gap of available comics it will a daunting task to keep documenting the stories and adventures of Captain Marvel.  

I've not been able to keep on a steady schedule with my various Captain Marvel blogs, but will continue to try to update them from time to time as I can!  Again, I 100% respect DCs right to these comics!
