In Parts 1 and 2 of “Hey! That Ain’t Funny!,” the rise of educational comic books in the early forties was chronicled. True Comics, Classics Illustrated, and Picture Stories of the Bible were all notable sales successes, as were publications geared specifically to Catholic youth. Far less profitable was a Protestant comic book named The Challenger, which espoused progressive attitudes towards interracial relations. After the war, two publishers took a chance by specifically targeting an African-American audience. Comic books marketed to teen-aged girls would prove more lucrative. Comics especially produced for science geeks and news junkies, not so much.
