Baseball Shenigans

This cartoon from a comic book cracked me up . . . no pun intended. Fauntleroy is a little duck who has quite a knack for getting into trouble.

Don't all cartoon characters?

It's fun to read the older and forgotten comics and realize most of them fit right into the mainstream today.

Gulliver's Travels

The story of Gulliver's Travels is a classic and very entertaining for kids. The opening page from the comic book of the same name gives you an idea what you can look forward to.

In my writings I've taken some classics and rewrote them in a more modern way and might consider doing the same with this but I'm not so sure kids know this story.

Leave It To Beaver Comic Book

Leave it to Beaver is a classic TV show. Until today, though, I had no idea the was a comic book of Leave it to Beaver. I have no idea how many individual Leave it to Beaver Comic Books there were but so far I've come across four.

The Toodles

The Toodles was a newspaper comic strip by Hae Baers. I just came across this and this first strip cracked me up. The mother couldn't help but crack a smile at the kid's logic.

Fight Lasted Longer than the Ronda Rousey Fight

As luck would have it I came across this comic book page soon after Ronda Rousey destroyed Bethe Correia in 34 seconds.

This fight gave the audience more for their money. In 1892 Harry Sharpe knocked out Frank Crosby in round 77. There are a couple other feats noted in this comic but this one fits in with the immediate present.
