Scanned by Darwination (a McCoy edit).
Here's the best links I've found for background information:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fawcett_Publications <--begins with info on it

http://www.aboutcomics.com/cbwb.html <---blurb from about comics re: the one reprint issue they did.

http://www.compedit.com/whiz_bang.htm <----a short academic sort of survey of the mag

When I scanned it, I was bummed there were no pictures or toons, but I was surprised to find myself laughing the whole way through. The language is incredibly rich - a mix of high and low, and some of the jokes are terribly funny. PC sensibilities might get wounded because of some racist material, but I get tired of saying things like that because it's just History, warts and all. I also like the idea that this little roughshod publication launched an empire, Fawcett's mags from the 30s are amazingly well done, and, of course, their comics are a great mix of fun and intelligent stories...

Cheers,
-Darwin
