Heroes, Heartthrobs and Horrors: Celebrating Connecticut’s Invention of the Comic Book

Oct 19, 2003 - Sep 7, 2004

In 1933, Eastern Color Printing in Waterbury produced the first modern format comic book, Funnies on Parade. In honor of the 70th anniversary, CHS introduced the general public to Connecticut’s important role in the development of the comic book, particularly during the Golden Age of comics from the 1940s through the 1950s.
