Although the Black Hood is on the cover, and despite the fact that at least two other issues of Roly Poly (#1 & #10) do indeed have MLJ material, this issue (#15 on the cover, Vol.2 #6 in the indicia) is comprised of features for an entire issue of Blue Circle:

1st Feature: Blue Circle
2nd Feature: Toreador
3rd Feature: Maureen Marine
4th Feature: Diftwood Davey
5th Feature: Steel Fist
6th Feature: Slaphappy Grandpappy

All of these were Blue Circle features and none of these stories are ones that appear in Blue Circle #1-5!

So, if all of the comics that had the cover for Blue Circle #6 were indeed remaindered contents, it appears that Roly Poly Comics #15 contained remaindered material from Blue Circle...or something along those lines.
