All comic book files have been researched by the Digital Museum staff and users to make sure they are copyright free and in the public domain. The comics represent different points of time during the 20th century as well as a range of genres like mystery, romance, adventure, Western, war, science fiction, funny animal stories and crime. The covers of the comics offer insight into the art and design of the time. This museum offers opportunities for discovering some history, art, and literature of the past. Educators may want to preview any comic they may assign so there are no surprises with depictions in images or narratives.
Materials can easily be used to view the use of design, entertainment venue of the time period, study of events or viewpoints during the 20th century.
