Kate King, Reporter-1962

The art here--credited by GCD to Russ Manning but I'm not quiiiiite sure I agree--reminds me of the great newspaper story strips of the '50s, '60s, and '70s!

Minute Man-Phil Bard-1943

Comic books in World War II were a major source of Allied propaganda with superheroes from most publishers pushing War Bonds and Victory Bonds to kids and their parents on a regular basis. And it helped. The Allies won! As we go in to this Memorial day, thanks to all who have served before or since, and thanks also to those who bought Bonds to help win the Big One!

Kay McKay, Air Hostess-Art Saaf-1941

Nowadays, it's just mostly arguing with drunks or, if you're at United, dragging people off the plane. Back in the day, however, there was a lot more to an air hostess than the old "Coffee, tea, or me?" image. At least THIS one!
