Sunday Morning Funnies
As those who watch the always-excellent TV program CBS News Sunday Morning know, May 3, 1934, marked the start of the comic-book, as the inaugural issue of the first regularly published comic book, Famous Funnies was published that day. In its report on this momentous anniversary, Sunday Morning featured some great photos of kids (and some adults) reading comics, including the two Disney comic issues (Pluto Four Color 509, October 1953, art by Dick Moores; and Donald Duck Four Color 300, art attributed to Carl Buettner) pictured here. Happy 75th anniversary of the comic book to everyone!
