Web Site of the Week: Educational Comics Collection

Are you interested in reading about “Adventures in Electricity”? Perhaps you’d like to peruse “All Aboard Mr. Lincoln”?  These fascinating titles (and 76 others) are available here, courtesy of the University of Nebraska Libraries. This compelling collection contains educational comics created by a raft of different government agencies and other organizations, and they present a rather diverse portrait of the ways in which various topics were addressed in words and pictures over the past seventy years. Some of the more curious items here include “Dragons Visit Earth To Study Food and the Land” (sponsored by the Soil Conservation Society of America in 1984) and “Mark Steel Fights Pollution!” [KMG]
