My youngest is following the Rocketeer family tradition [ like he had a choice] and is signing on at HM pleasure for the ' fall session'.. In appreciation of his presence of mind, old uncle Charlie [ the lad with the detachable teeth and hair ] has given the boy a copy of a 'collectable edition' of old war comics.. Something called "Commando" - the book was put out in 2006, but the strips inside look to be of an earlier vintage.. Got me thinking of all those great old comic heroes of wars gone by.. and I don't mean Blackhawk and GI Joe and Sgt. Rock and Fury and that bunch [ fun though they were ], but the good stuff... but, the book reminded me of one chapter in my yoof that cause pain and consternation with my maternal unit when discovered. I recall my short passion for pirate stories in an old war comic anthology.. Put out by Zap Comix in the 60's a collection that would, I'm sure have stirred the cockles [can I say that, now? ] of the late, lamented MDN's heart..: " Captain Pissgums and his Pervert Pirates".. nary a panel of which could be reproduced without graphic warnings and NSFW labels in dayglow 36 point font... anyone have fond memories of comics enjoyed before or after discovering porn and grot mags??
