67 YEARS AGO TODAY

If you were American, odds were one in three that you had read at least 10 comic books in the previous 30 days.

Despite the huge potential audience, according to Mark Evanier's KIRBY: KING OF COMICS, the Kirby written and drawn BOYS' RANCH did not sell well and was canceled after 6 issues.

  1. A shame, too, because it was a great book. Maybe kid group comics had had their day. I think Biro's Little Wise Guys were still around, but does anyone recall a successful kids group comic from the mid-fifties on? I suppose Legion of Superheroes or Teen Titans, but that's not quite the same thing . . .
