Here's one for the Superhero Spirituality category I started a few years back. (You can see others in the category archives in the left column.)
Okay, it's an indulgence, but oh so much fun! I love old comic books, and over the years I've collected a lot of images from them, mostly from a site called Comic Book +
. The artwork is great, even though the printing was sometimes off kilter. And often, the writing was great, too, particularly in the old literary
comics, other books called "British Story Papers," and even some of the classic comic strips. I'm so glad that site attempts to preserve, at least in digital form, these cultural icons.
Once in a while, I like to imagine how the illustrators and publishers back then would have handled it if Thunder Valley Drums
had sponsored a series of superhero ads about spirituality and social consciousness. Here's today's result. And this time around, it appears as though they have
chosen Dick Tracy as a spokesman!
Thanks for the endorsement, Mr. Tracy!
