Back-to-school is not only a great time to buy a new pair of shoes, it's a great time to read a little Buster Brown over at the blog And Everything Else Too. Check out the beautiful jpegs of Buster Brown Goes to Mars, a free, 20-page, full-color promotional comic book that was published by Western Publishing in early 1958 and distributed by participating shoe and department stores. The cover shown here was from a store located in Dayton, Ohio. I've seen other covers for stores that were located in Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New York and Wisconsin.
