The Mini-Blogathons Return...

Starting next week, our annual Mini-Blogathons will be back...
We had so much D-Day material available, that we've decided to use some of it for the blogathons, beginning with Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos hitting the beach on D-Day!
Yes, it was reprinted in a Marvel Masterworks a decade ago, but those are extremely-expensive and didn't sell very well, so most of you have never seen this tale from 53 years ago!
We're giving equal time to Fury's counterpart, Sgt. Rock, presenting his never-reprinted D-Day adventure!
Both of these sagas will appear at (where else) War: Past, Present & Future!
It was really crowded at Normandy on June 6th, 1944 since Blackhawk and his team were also there, so it's only fair we present their never-reprinted D-Day adventure...which also doubles as their never-revealed Hero Histories!
Since we're phasing back in to regular blogging after the harrowing events of the past few months, we're limiting the Blogathons, which, while fun, tend to be exhausting to produce!
Starting Monday, we'll be back to daily posts here at Atomic Kommie Comics, continuing the ongoing features where we left off!
In addition, True Love Comics Tales will return to weekly posting on Wednesday, beginning with our usual Summertime "beach read", a book-length Gothic novel!

Holiday Reading Room EVERY DAY IS A HOLLY DAY "Independence Day"

From 1956, here's a never-reprinted tale from a unique comic...
...produced to promote, of all things, sugar!
Why is the Brevity, Inc comic entitled "Every Day is a Holly Day" instead of "Every Day is a Holiday"?
Because it was given away to kids by grocers who sold Holly Sugar!
Illustrated by John Rosenberger, it's a unique pamphlet covering a number of American holidays, including both Lincoln and Washington's Birthdays (before they were combined into "Presidents' Day"), Mothers' Day (though not Fathers' Day), Flag Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, and a couple of holidays we've largely abandoned...Pan-American Day and American Indian Day!
We'll be presenting the other chapters on the dates they fall upon.
Watch for them...and be here tomorrow when we present the line-up for our annual Summer Mini-Blogathons!
We're back and raring to go!
