Famous Funnies #14 (August 1935), saw Eastern Color Printing start to include editor pages as messages to readers.  This was a trend started by National Allied Publications (later to become DC Comics) a few months before, and I think it was an important step in building up the comic book industry, as it made the books seem to be more than just bundles of reprinted stories.
