Blue Bird Comics (8th Nov 15 at 2:37am UTC)
Since the "Blue Bird" Comics are an imprint of their own, I've spun them off to their own checklist.
This is uncharted territory for the most part. There is no definitive resource on how many variants exist.
This is a template that may shrink or morph into something different...

Started adding some more scans to the Blue Bird Comics Checklist.

http://charltoncomics.herobo.com/Charlton_Blue_Bird_Checklist.html

I mostly added a few Black Fury scans. Added a couple of Freddy scans. Still haven't decided how I want to do the gallery pages. These are a mess. I have a lot of scans to process, so I may split off and do something else before I get all the scans I have posted.

I'm tinkering around with wow I want to display the galleries. I'm thinking of doing different pages for each shoe brand as well as doing a huge gallery for each title. Here is a Black Fury/Shiff's shoe gallery.

http://charltoncomics.herobo.com/Blue_Bird_Comics/Black_Fury/Blue_Bird_Schiffs_Black_Fury.html

This is really an ambitious undertaking.

Re: Blue Bird Comics (20th Apr 16 at 9:31pm UTC)
Added some scans and some issue numbers to the Blue Bird Comics checklist. It's at version 0.5. I still consider it a beta version. I cannot confirm which brand variants existed so I'm listing all likely possibilities. Some brands like Schiff's or Big Shoe variants are more common. Some are very not very common at all like E.D. Edwards or Federal. I'm not entirely sure if Masked Raider went as high as #15 or #16 nor am I entirely sure that Wild Bill Hickok had a #1. Mysteries of Unexplored Worlds has a #18 with the shoe brands combined, but no earlier issue number seem to exist. It's possible that the titles shifted names while keeping the same numbering. I do know Lil' Genius went to issue #16. As I narrow down what exactly exists, I'll update the list and correct the numbering as necessary. For now, this is a template for populating the list with scans. The scans are typically low quality when i find them online. I'm willing to compromise the quality of the scans for this checklist just to get it populated. As I populate each title and brand, the quality of the scans can be reviewed side by side in the cover galleries.

I downloaded some scans to process, but I am sick of this list. It looks like E.D. Edwards has some Dell comics that were Give-away comics that have a shoe ad for the front cover. Interesting.

I've been working on these horrid shoe store giveaway comics.
The checklist is up to 0.24. I'm not confident that every issue number exists.
Whether the branding exists for every issue listed will probably not be known in my lifetime.

Regardless, I'm proud to say that my Schiff's Shoe Variant gallery is complete for Masked Raider.
http://charltoncomics.herobo.com/Blue_Bird_Comics/Masked_Raider/Blue_Bird_Schiffs_Masked_Raider.html

The Schiff's Shoe branding appears to be the more common variant with E.D. Edwards branding being the least common.

A lot of work has been put into this in the past month. It's not easy to tell.

Re: Blue Bird Comics (5th Aug 19 at 11:13pm UTC)
The Blue Bird page was updated. I force myself to add a few or I'd keep postponing the updates forever.

The checklist is up to version 0.27
http://charltoncomics.herobo.com/Charlton_Blue_Bird_Checklist.html

I added scans for:
Black Fury #5 (Big Shoes Variant)
Black Fury #6 (Big Shoes Variant)
Texas Rangers #15 (R&S Shoes Variant)
Texas Rangers #16 (Big Shoes Variant)

The page for the Texas Rangers Schiff's Shoes variants was fully populated back in 2018, but I didn't have a gallery link to it. The link has been added.

Re: Blue Bird Comics (19th Aug 19 at 1:51am UTC)
The checklist is up to version 0.38
http://charltoncomics.herobo.com/Charlton_Blue_Bird_Checklist.html

I added images for:
Six-Gun Heroes #15 (E. D. Edward Shoes Variant)
Six-Gun Heroes #15 (Kirby's Shoes Variant)
Six-Gun Heroes #15 (Schiff's Shoes Variant)
Six-Gun Heroes #16 (Blue Bird Shoe Variant)
Six-Gun Heroes #16 (Schiff's Shoes Variant)

There is no evidence online that #11-#14 exist so far, but some of these comics should have 8 variants each and only one scan has surfaced for specific issues. Atomic Mouse issues are particularly difficult to find online. I keep hoping a warehouse find is discovered with all the variants, but I'm not optimistic that will happen. I'm doing extensive reconstruction on a Six-Gun Heroes #15 (Big Shoes Variant). The worst part is done. I just need to complete some aesthetic adjustments to finish it.

In most cases, my scans for this imprint will mirror what is available through GCD. I have a few more, but not many.

The checklist is up to version 0.39

I added images for:
Six-Gun Heroes #15 (Big Shoes Variant)

Wild Bill Hickok #1 (R&S Shoes Variant)
Wild Bill Hickok #1(Schiff's Shoes Variant)
Wild Bill Hickok #2 (Big Shoes Variant)
Wild Bill Hickok #5 (R&S Shoes Variant)

After I'm through processing all of the scans I have, I'll do one more intensive search of missing cover images.
Then I'll make gallery pages for any row that has 50% or more of the image sets complete.

I expect Li'l Genius to be done for awhile, but I will scour the web one more time before I set it aside. I only have a handful of Blue Bird shoe comic scans to process for now. I want to get caught up as much as possible before getting on with regular Charlton imprint stuff.

Re: Blue Bird Comics (5th Sep 19 at 12:17am UTC)
I'm getting very close to wrapping this up for awhile. They don't sell well, so many of the images on eBay are the same ones I saw 3 years ago. Not a lot of new copies are coming to market, so it's tough getting images I need.

I do believe my cover gallery to be the most complete online. GCD is close. I'm not even sure if some issues that I'm looking for exist.
