Publisher's Blurb:

From the back page of No. 1 dated March 31, 1900: "This new weekly library will be introduced to the public on Wednesday, March 29th, 1900. It is bound to be like all of Street & Smith's lines, sure winner from the start. Tom Wright, the hero of Comrades, is a bright boy who has decided to devote his life to the service of 'King Steam' in one of the great railroads of our land. Rest assured he will reach fame and fortune on the lightning express. The life of an ambitious railroad man is full of exciting incident, and Tom has his full share of adventures. Through all of these he will be found Wright by name, right in word, right in deed, and always right. The many adventures of Tom and his friends will be followed with the deepest interest by all who are fortunate enough to read this new series of splendid stories. Tom will be surrounded by several 'comrades', who will join hands with him and stand by him in his various enterprises. Mr. Robert Steel is an author of wide experience in the field covered by these stories, and we are certain his work will please all who admire our well-known 'Tip Top Weekly' and 'Do and Dare Weekly', to which 'Comrades' will be a companion. Street & Smith know just what the boys and girls of America like best, and as announced in a previous card, propose to render if possible for every boy and girl in the land to find just what they want, and as great a variety as they desire in the publications issued by them. They cover all fields, and fill all demands. All their lines are leaders. Remember No. 1 Comrades will be on sale March 25th. Read it! Price 5c 32 pages--illuminated cover--uniform in size and style with Tip Top and Do and Dare."

A later blurb states: "Of the many weeklies which we have recently introduced to the public, Comrades has proved itself one of the most popular. Tom Wright, the hero, is a splended character and a strong favorite with all who say of him that he is Wright by name and right by nature, right in deed and always right. The many thrilling and exciting adventures of Tom and his friends will be followed with deepest interest by all who read COMRADES."

From the back cover of late numbers when baseball stories were featured: "Play Ball! Tom Wright at the bat. We have arranged to publish a series of SPECIAL BASEBALL STORIES by Robert Steel. Tom Wright, the boy's favorite, will appear in his new and greatest role, with one of the strongest teams ever brought upon the diamond. Tom and his team will play hard, fast and clean ball, and we can promise COMRADES readers a treat, as nothing better in the way of base-ball stories has ever been written. You cannot afford to miss reading these stories. The first of the series will begin in COMRADES No. 67."
