Digital Comic Museum

I was a comic book collector when I was younger so this site appealed to me personally. The Digital Comic Museum is a collection of comics from the "Golden Age of Comics" (1930's-1950's) that are now "public domain and have been put up on the net. For those of you who were around at the time, you will feel nostalgia as you look through this extensive collection of comics. Comic book collectors have the ability to read these classic comics without having to pay the huge price tag of owning them. Finally, the Digital Comic Museum has educational value because it provides a snapshot into American culture of the time. These comics were published during World War II as well as the earliest days of the Cold War so there is plenty of propaganda to be found for the social studies teachers out there.
