Sunday News

posted on January 9, 2017


As the Akron Comicon was winding down last November, I did a quick spin around the dealer room and spotted a guy selling old New York Sunday News comic sections. The price was right so I picked up a year’s worth… 1947 to be exact. I’ve always wondered what it must have been like to open a comics section back in the day and read the adventures of Prince Valiant, Terry and the Pirates, Flash Gordon, and the venerable Dick Tracy. So this year I plan to enjoy one of the these comic sections every Sunday and (channeling the Twilight Zone) imagine that I’m lying on the living room carpet and reading it back when the comics were truly king.
