To my fellow Americans:
233 years ago today, a remarkably brave group of men began signing a document that could have been their death warrant if they failed in their goal: to gain independence for the American colonies of Great Britain. They fought… bled… died. And for over 200 years, those of us who have come afterwards have been trying to live up to their example.
So no snark. No jokes. Out of respect for them and all those who have come since, I offer a very sincere Happy Independence Day.
We’ll be firing up the grill any moment now, so today I just offer you this: a quick look at some of my favorite patriotic comic book covers, to enjoy the day. And you can check out more at a classic EBI column, #222: Comic Covers From Sea to Shining Sea
