JACKIE ROBINSON "Baseball Hero" Part 2

...After demonstrating amazing athletic skills in multiple sports in high school and college (UCLA), Jackie Robinson began playing baseball in the Negro League for the Kansas City Monarchs, where his prowess caught the eye of a scout for the Brooklyn Dodgers!
Jackie was assigned to the Dodgers' International League farm team the Montreal Royals, just one step below the major leagues.
But the first Black player in the previously all-White professional leagues was about to discover the path to the majors was destined to be a rocky one...
Be Here Thursday When Jackie Debuts as a Brooklyn Dodger!
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!

Monday Madness ALICE "Flying Saucers"

I always wondered what happens when someone takes the concept of "flying saucers" literally...
...as the amazing Dave Berg did in this cover-featured tale from Ziff-Davis' Alice #11 (1953)!
Not quite the sort of "flying saucers" we usually present, eh?
