Topic: Comic Book History
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3868 - In memory of the many soldiers who have served our country with bravery and honor... Today's blog post is on why we have the day off as a holiday.
So what is 'Memorial Day' all about?
Here is the link to the Wikipedia entry, as to when and where the 'Memorial Day' holiday started.
Here is the link to Comics.org, where you can find other comic books that have theme related covers. There aren't any true 'Memorial Day' comic books with that title, however, so don't bother looking via those key words.
To help you look, here is a link to Batman #30 from August / September of 1945 with the 7th War Loan front cover.
This is the link to Superman #12 from September / October of 1941 with Superman posing with a sailor and an army man.
Plus, a link to World's Finest #5 from Spring of 1942 with Batman, Robin & Superman.
There are several more front covers with this theme... Have some fun checking them out at the Comics.org web site!
And yes, before I forget to mention it, the comic book pictured at the top right of this blog is Sgt. Fury & His Howling Commandos #18, cover dated May of 1965. The title of the story says it all... "Killed In Action"!
Take some time during this three day weekend to remember what Memorial Day is truly about!
