Make a Fortune in the Comics!

Apparently the funnies you read every day back in 1933 brought $8 000 000 a year to a small group of 200 cartoonists. Sadly those glory days are long over. Still, it's worth checking out this vintage Modern Mechanix Magazine over at their fascinating and ambitious blog where they're apparently scanning in their entire output dating back to forever. My favorite line is how the depression era can bring big checks to cartoonists with new ideas. I wonder if that still works.

Thanks to Sherm at the always excellent Cartoon SNAP blog for the tip.
