This Day In History!
March 29th of 1865... The Battle of Appomattox during the American Civil War began...


TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3820 -    Just before I shut down and leave for the 2013 WonderCon being held in Anaheim, California.... I want to mention what happened on 'This Day In History'!

March 29th of 1865 the Appomattox Campaign started...

So you ask, what does this have to do with comic books?

Well... In the Classics Illustrated #162A, dated June of 1961, I find that a couple of the stories in the issue are illustrated by Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers!  (Jack is shown to the left in the top photo of this blog post, and to the right of Jack is Joe Sinnott.)

You might ask... What are Kirby & Ayers doing over at the publisher, Gilberton?  Didn't the Fantastic Four first publish in November of 1961?

I don't know, but along with Kirby & Ayers illustrating in this issue, are: Geoffrey Biggs (who did the front cover painting shown at the top right), Sam Glanzman, George Evans, Reed Crandall, Norman Nodell, and others.

Which would make this comic book one that I would like to see and read!  Maybe I'll find a copy at WonderCon during these next three days?!

Anyways, that's what happened on this date, March 29th... Back in 1865!
