SideLines: Comic books a pleasant reminder of youth
When I was growing up, I was a big comic book reader. It started with my mother reading to me until I became old enough to read them myself.
From cowboys and Indians, I slowly segued into war. I’m not sure if that’s because I was a typical red-blooded American boy or if it was a reflection of the culture. Back then, westerns were the most popular shows on TV and the movies. John Wayne and Matt Dillon were the heroes of everyone I knew. Plus, World War II was still fresh in everyone’s minds, so there was a plethora of books and movies on that as well.
I eagerly devoured such comics as “Our Fighting Forces” and “Our Army at War.” My favorite was a Dell series called “War-Stories Combat,” each one featuring a World War II battle, like the Battle of the Bulge or Okinawa.
