Sunday comics bring back the joy of my childhood.  No fictional stories delight and held the interest and loyalty of so many people for so long week after week, 52 times a year.

You may not consider the comics great literature, but they must have something to hold so many people for so long.

These strips are taken from The Sun, it was a Sydney afternoon tabloid newspaper, first published under this name in 1910.  The Peanuts comic comes from the LA Times 1955.  I discovered an old strip that I had taken a screen capture sometime ago.
