Did you know that Mississippi was the subject of one issue of a famous, nationally-published comic book series? Archie Comics Publications occasionally produces custom comics for certain causes. In 1994, literacy in Mississippi became one of those causes when Archie Comics produced a limited edition issue in conjunction with the Bolivar County Literacy Council. Aptly titled Archie and Friends Help Raise Literacy Awareness in Mississippi, the issue was used to help promote literacy in Bolivar County and the state.
The Archie comics were a childhood favorite of mine, and now I know that there’s an entire issue related to Mississippi. How cool is that?
