Comic books have been with us since the late 1800’s. We all know about DC Comics and Marvel but before them there were a number of comic books that related to actual human beings. Sgt. Rock was among my favorites but I really loved Classics Illustrated which were short versions of stories handed down over the years. I learned to love history through them, stories that made me want to learn more and know more.
How to celebrate – Look for old comics, some are really rare. Make a list of your favorite comic books. Work on making your own comic books. (It helps to know how to draw)
