Topic: Comic Book History
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3773 - I thought I would present something different in today's blog....
I'm going to mention what this day meant in the year of 1908, and then tie it to comic books!
On this date, January 11th of 1908, President Teddy Roosevelt declared the Grand Canyon in Arizona to be a 'national monument'!
So, when looking for comic books that tied in to this event or the Grand Canyon itself, I found that there was a Grand Canyon Association that published four comics in a comic book series titled: Canyon Comics Presents.
In issue #1 the feature is: Chasm - Guardian of Grand Canyon!
There were three other issues in this series, which were published in three different years, per the GCDB.
I find that the Grand Canyon Association has a web site also.
I only see about two other comic book series that had a Grand Canyon theme, but I'll mention those in another year...
It truly is amazing what the field of comic books has offered in the past!
