READING COMICS: 24 Vintage Photos of
America’s 2nd Favorite Preoccupation
Postcard book



Vintage photos of people (both famous and ordinary) eagerly reading newspaper comics and comic books over seven decades (1920-1991). Tongue-in-cheek captions by editor/publisher Denis Kitchen on flip sides.

Recognizable comics readers include James Dean, Humphrey Bogart, Jerry Garcia, Harvey Kurtzman and Alan Ladd, but the funniest are the ordinary boys with bug-eyes looking at ‘40s and ‘50s horror and superhero comics or families reading dorky comics together.

24 all-different postcards, printed in sepia duotone on heavy card stock. Simultaneously hilarious and nostalgic, they show the origins of comic fandom, especially timely given the contemporary popularity of graphic novels. Designed by John Lind.


4” x 6.5” Soft cover postcard book with perforated left edges. ISBN # 0-9710080-7-8
