A Celebration of Comic Art and Memorabilia by Robert Lesser

Hardcover – Hawthorn Books – 1975 – 292 pages

ZAP! Fifty years of golden comics, from Little Nemo through Flash Gordon, with 45 color plates and 300 black-and-white photos: wind-up toys, Disney spin-offs, radio’s Little Orphan Annie and Captain Midnight decoder rings (the secret messages broadcast on the air tended to be insipidly patriotic), hundreds of give-away items (send in your box tops), Superman statues, a Buck Rogers’ Disintegrator Pistol, his pencil boxes and rubber-stamp set, plus pulp magazine covers (The Spider, Doc Savage, G-8 and His Battle Aces, etc.), and other samples of surreal industrial design and imaginative trivia for kids–all told a titanic nostalgia trip. (Kirkus Reviews)
