One of the longest-running baseball-themed comics was about one of the most controversial players of all time...
...Jackie Robinson, the first Black man to play in the previously all-White major leagues!
Be Here Tuesday When Jackie Amazes the Skeptics!
Written by Charles Dexter, and illustrated by an unknown artist, this book-length tale from Fawcett's Jackie Robinson (1949) detailed his life and career up to mid-1949.
Intended as a one-shot, it sold so well that it went to a bi-monthly series the next summer!
We'll be serializing it for the next couple of weeks on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in tribute to the legendary baseball player's 100th birthday!
