A few links

Rare political cartoon by Lucy van Pelt found.

For the sake of the children, Batman must die!

And meanwhile, Superman vs. Jesus by Ty Templeton.

A look at just a few months of 1950s Prize romance comics with lots of Kirby.

Communist super-villains from Steve Bissette's upcoming return to 1963 TALES OF THE UNCANNY.

Sluggo and the Cookie Shortage.

I've posted a bunch of 1950s Ditko stories recently, I especially like this one, check it out and if you like follow the links for more, there are some 125 or so full stories available so far, expect about another hundred of them in the next year.
