Classics Illustrated comic books adapted great books of literature and also helped many high school students write book reports.
'HRN' Numbering system explained. Most issues were reprinted often. Each edition is identified by its HRN# -- the lower the number, the older the edition. HRN stands for "Highest Reorder Number", from the coupon in the comic to order issues by mail.
In some cases, the covers vary from one HRN# to another.
