Topic: Comic Book History
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3776 - I've had a project to do the past two days, which kept me from blogging...
So today, I'm going to ease back into the swing of things by blogging a little on history and the comic book connection.
This date, January 17th, back in 1961 was the date that President Dwight D Eisenhower bid farewell to the American people via a nationally televised speech. He had served two terms as President, and three days later, he and his wife, Mamie, left Washington DC for their farm in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Dwight passed on March 28th of 1969. The comic book cover shown at the top right of this blog is from the Dell Comics commemorative comic book titled: Dwight D Eisenhower, cover dated December of 1969.
Dwight was also mentioned in over 100 comic book titles, as seen in this link.
Dwight had four comic book one-shots, as seen in this link.
His bio is shown in this Wikipedia entry.
This event, his bidding farewell, is today's entry in this series of blogs.
