Quote from: "Super Monkey"
This was a very important milestone in comics, as it was the 1st ever creator own comic.


Dubious claim, no?

What about the Spirit?  Undergrounds?  Newspaper strips?  Graphic novels?

Maybe first comic book sized superhero comic that was creator owned?

Superhero comic, what else could he be?

The Spirit ...

As Eisner reveals in his interview with Tom Heintjes for The Spirit - The Origin Years #3:

"... I agreed let (Everett) Arnold copyright it in his name rather than mine, but with the stipulation my ownership was acknowledged in the contract, and that at any time the partnership terminated, all rights to The Spirit would revert to me."

Everett "Busy" Arnold was the publisher of Quality Comics, hence the reprints of Spirit sections in Police Comics. When The Spirit series came to an end in 1952, Arnold sold the rights to Eisner for the token sum of $1000.
