World War II and Comic Books
Here's another school literature/connection to WW2 that I'm reminded of. Captain America got his start fighting Nazi's in the 40's. It was a creation of Joe Simon and 76 Suffolk Street's Jack Kirby (I lived there for my first 4 years). Later the Captain was co-opted by The Right."King" Kirby also had his earlier Newsboy Legion right here in NYC. If anyone is interested in comic book collecting you can contact my old friend's son Josh Nathanson at comiclink.com.
Again, because this was created as a self controlled slide show the conversion to automatic is too fast. Use my advice about this on the Always Remember post of yesterday. The text is also too small because of the size limitations of google video on blogs
