Public Domain Appearances

  • Mad Hatter #1
  • Animal Fables

Notes

  • Although the end of the story said Freddy would be appearing in a new title called "Animal Antics," no title was ever produced by O.W. Comics Corp.
  • Aside from being an insect, everything else about Freddy is nearly identical to Johnny Storm (aka: Marvel Comics' Human Torch) who is, most definitely, NOT in the public domain.
