    Yankee Shorts:   (about)
    The first series was published from 1940 to 1942, numbered sequentially, but with each individual issue carrying the name of an individual magazine. The series mixed reprints with original stories probably depending on how much space there was left in each issue.

    The second series, published in 1943/1944, were digest-sized and were explicitly labelled Yankee Shorts as well as a separate title such as Romance Shorts and Western Shorts and a number. In this series, however, the issues were numbered as sequels to the equivalent title in the first series. whether these numbers represented a second generic series, or if each was numbered as a sequel to the first series.
