Mimosa Detective Comics 1

Thanks Mahdi from Readers Den (Cape Town) for this scan of Mimosa Detective Comics 1.
Visit their website:
Readers Den Comic Shop

This rare South African reprint was published in 1960 by Mimosa Publications (S.A. Magazine Co.).
Cover and Interior pages are newsprint - so after being read and swopped a few times they would likely be falling apart and thrown away.
These titles were printed in a smaller size (245x167mm) compared to the original DC Comics title.
Cover and Interior printed in colour.
The printing reproduction from the original was very good quality. This issue is only 24 pages.
