|This is a photograph of the funnies from my father's paper. It's a half a page long. He used to add the funnies to the packages he'd mail to us until a few months ago. His newspaper stopped printing the funnies.|
|In the last package he sent, my father included this: |
The Comic Weekly, a section from
the Baltimore American, July 1949.
There are six whole pages of funnies all in color.
|A classic on page 3.|
|And another classic, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. advertising for Camels at the bottom of page five.|
|Also on page five, blond girl is so excited, convinced The Phantom wants to marry her. Well, he did give her a "wife house." He just forgot to mention she's going to be his three hundred and first wife. |
|Luckily, little girls on page two know the best way to make their daddies proud. |
Have clean, pretty dresses.
I'm a fan of the funnies and it's been interesting reading through this old paper. Things certainly have changed, some for the good, others not so much. I wonder what the funnies will look like sixty years from now, that is if they still exist.
What do you think?
