The Slacker's Option: An Old Comic Book Cover

Dear Readers,

Our sincere apologies for not writing this past month: your humble blogger has been busy with a major life event this June. But things should be back to relative normality within a few weeks and once this happens, WGTB should be back at the pace of one or two postings per week about comics, books and the occasional film. First up will be a review of the new legal thriller Bay Street by Canadian author Philip Slayton.  

In the meanwhile, please enjoy this cover of Pep Comics #1 featuring "The Shield". Pep is the predecessor of Archie Comics.

Pep Comics #1 (Jan 1940) Reprinted in Supermen: The First Wave of Comic Book Heroes 1936-1941, Edited by Greg Sadowski (Seattle: Fantagraphics Books, 2009)
