A prophetic photo, as I did become a big comic book fan. My favorites: Uncle $crooge, Walt Disney's Comics and Stories, Pogo, Little Lulu. Also bought Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tubby, Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse and scads of others, but I never got into superheroes. Stored them (along with those inherited from my brother) in big stacks in a cabinet down in the basement, arranged by title and in chronological order. Frequent re-readings necessitated periodic large-scale re-sorting operations that my mother often aided in. I'm one of those lucky ones whose mother didn't throw them all out one day when the kid wasn't looking; she liked reading them too occasionally. I have an inventory I made in early 1967 (when I was still buying them) showing a total of 1508. Just about all of them are still in existence, most stored at a friend's place. You know, I really did have more fun as a blond. | Click image for Comments. | Home | Browse All Photos
