A Catholic Comic book

Feast of Saint Hermengild

WOW! I love it when I find old, solidly Catholic literature (at least this appears to be so). I found out about this one from Dust of the Time.

This comic book, Treasure Chest of Fun & Fact, is stored online by The American Catholic History Research Center and University Archives, part of The Catholic University of America.

This is what the site has to say about this comic book -
The Treasure Chest of Fun & Fact was a Catholic comic book published by George A. Pflaum of Dayton, Ohio, and provided to Catholic parochial school students between 1946 and 1972. The digital collection is a project that will include the first eighteen volumes running from 1946 to 1963. Volumes 1-3, 5-12, and 15-18 have been digitized with volumes 4, 13, and 14 to be added soon.

Wait until I show my children! Perhaps this will move me from "Mean Mommy" to "Favorite Mommy" status. Of course I am their only mommy, but whatever!
