Step back in time to enjoy one of the first Catholic comic book magazines ever created!
Treasure Chest of Fun & Fact was launched by George A. Pflaum on March 12, 1946 in an effort to counteract “objectionable” comics that were popular at the time.
Yet, he did not simply want to “preach” the Gospel, but provide an entertaining alternative that anyone could pick-up and enjoy.
Here’s how Pflaum first introduced his Treasure Chest of Fun & Fact!
More than four years ago the publishers of the MESSENGERS had laid plans to issue a worthwhile comic magazine as a counteractive to the objectionable type.
TREASURE CHEST is not just another substitute for the objectionable comic publication. It stands on its own merits as a quality magazine which children–and adults–will enjoy and profit by.
The art work and illustrations are superior. The content has great variety and lasting interest. Activity projects, such as “things-to-make-and-do,” are included.
The issues in this volume have been meticulously restored and recolored, allowing you to enjoy Treasure Chest like never before!
