usga adds classic golf comics to collection

Among all the great volumes from the best golf writers of lore comes a new collection for the mighty United States Golf Association – a collection of 500 of the world’s best comic books, with golf themes of course. The donation comes from GHS member Charlie Havisa and his wife, Sara, of Union City, Ind. Click here to see an article from the USGA’s Rand Jerris about the new collection. Famous Funnies, No. 1, is part of the collection.

Famous Funnies is considered by many historians of popular culture to be the first true comic book. The 68-page section had a print run of 35,000 and sold for 10 cents.
