Ah! Comic books!

Came across this over at Frog Blog,

A young boy reading comics outside a store in Nebraska in 1948.

The titles are interesting to contemplate; Archie is just about the only one that still exists. If I had been smart enough to save my comics collection, I could have put all my kids through college.

The Old Wolf has spoken.
