Childhood Treasures - Reading the Comics

As soon as I could read (I can’t remember when I couldn’t) I enjoyed the buried treasure of the printed word. I read the “funnies” (we never called them the comics) whenever we got the Sunday paper: Mutt and Jeff, Mary Worth, Little Orphan Annie, The Katzenjammer Kids, Popeye the Sailor Man, and my favorite, Dick Tracy. He fostered a secret desire to be a detective as I believed I could be just sneaky enough to gain information no one else could. I marveled at all the gadgets he had, especially his wrist watch that he used like a radio.
