Snark Free Corner for 1/21

by  in Comic News Comment

Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!

Enjoy!

THIS COMIC IS GOOD

The Fellowship of Reconciliation put out about 250,000 copies of this comic in 1956 (plus another 150,000 in Spanish)…


Possibly one of the strongest examples of using the comic book medium to help with social change, this comic, which tried to parse Dr. King’s message down for children, might not have had any direct effects upon the civil rights movement, but you have to think that some of the children who read this comic in 1956 took its message to heart, and for that, this is a remarkable comic book.

I wish I knew who produced it. Rumor has it that Al Capp’s studio did it, but I cannot confirm that.

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

A cool point to the first person to figure it out!

Good luck!

Remember, only one cover per commenter!

Good luck!
