Reading Room REAL FACT COMICS "Rookie of the Year" & PICTURE NEWS "California Flash"

...today, it's the "real deal"!
The story from DC's Real Fact Comics #14 (1948) presents the story in a straightforward, if slightly patronizing, manner.
The following tale from Parents Magazine's Picture News #4 (1946) by writer/artist Charles Wessel, predates his being called up to the majors.
Note it does contain a couple of racial stereotypes common to the era, and may be NSFW.
There was also an official Jackie Robinson comic book from major publisher Fawcett that lasted six issues (longer than most other comics based on real-life baseball players) from 1949-52.
We'll show you their covers tomorrow...
