Notes

Junior Readers' Press is associated with Ayers & James successor, Magazine Management (MM). MM established a 'Committee of Parents' to respond to censorship attacks in the mid-1950s, and this publisher used the "Parent Approved" logo. Some comics also include an "ACE" logo that periodically appeared across the MM group. Junior Readers' Press continued a title previously published by Approved Publications, a member of the MM group. Like other MM publishers, it reprinted Dell and Gold Key comics. "Magazine Management" didn't appear on any comics but was used on magazines published in Australia. (Magazine Management is not the Marvel company of the same name.)
