Milton Caniff gave away his MALE CALL comic strip.
MALE CALL was developed as a morale-booster for the troops and it was distributed to 3000 military camp papers from January 24, 1943 to March 3, 1946. The racy feature was a spin-off of his TERRY AND THE PIRATES strip, but without Terry. "Miss Lace" was the protagonist; a sexy and sweet innocent. She would get into humorous scrapes from week to week.
He offered it for free.
The Hairy Green Eyeball blog has the fist half of the original 1945 collection here.
EDIT: Here's the rest of the book.
