Jackie Turning Japanese
In the 1950's Fawcett Publications printed up Jackie Robinson comic books sold throughout the country. Six different editions were made. See a complete run of those comics from my collection here. What I didn't know was that a Japanese language version was also made. See it above. The front cover is a reverse image of the original American comic. I wonder if it has the exact same drawings? I'll never know since I was outbid. It sold for $82.00.
