I intend to scan them this fall. I can't get to it right now because they are in my house, which is under construction after being hit by the STL Good Friday tornado earlier this year.
I may also know someone who has a lot more of them. If so, I hope to scan many more.
Would these be of interest for this project?
I would be very interested, thank you! When you get around to scanning, you can upload to the FTP in the original post if you don't have another uploading option. Cheers!

Adobe Reader isn't so good at navigating old mags, or comics, my opinion.
Offering different viewing options and file formats is planned long term. I thought CBR would be a good way to go as I have read comics comfortably that way in the past (I read Maus via CDisplay). I also plan to offer separate .jpg's to facilitate a searchable index feature (way down the line). There have been suggestions of a dedicated magazine reader software (like Issuu), but I have yet to see a workable solution.
