If you're anything like me, you have an appreciation
for the older comic strips. Getting the message being conveyed sometimes requires a knowledge of the
events of the era, but for the most part the humor and/or satire comes through even when you assume
it relates to current events. WWI and WWII timeframe comics, for instance, often alluded to the evils
of Fascist governments overseas, while today they may be likened to the deeds of our own government.
These Contest Caper comics from a 1955 edition of Air Trails are timeless.
