Search help for comics on newsprint

I searched but all I can find, here or Google (well, I use Startpage but whatever), is comic BOOKS. These are not books. These are huge sheets of newsprint from 1932, 1934, around there.

My dad inherited some stuff from an uncle awhile ago. Amongst this stuff were comics, printed on newsprint. He wanted to learn more about them and if they might be worth something (as opposed to being useful for starting fires or something). I directed him to the library to look for books on values of comics and Google and he had no luck. I checked as well. All we can find is stuff about comic *books*.
I need some Google help. What will help me learn about comics on newsprint rather than comic books? I tried -book and -books with various combinations of newsprint, comic, tarzan (there are others but that seemed the most likely to give results), 1930s, 1934, etc., but that was not very helpful, or at least I am not able to tell if it is helpful since all I know about comics is that nowadays they are apparently called graphic novels.
Any search help or direction to appropriate comic web sites would be appreciated. Thanks.
Also I have no idea which category to use for this. I chose computers and internet because my question is mostly about searching Google.
