Sorry, you’ve got to take the rest of the day off and read comics. Head over to The Digital Comic Museum to read and download free public domain golden age comics that range from adventure to romance to off-brand wonky Donald Duck rip-offs to all kinds of government a-bomb avoidance pamphlets to comics from cartoonist superstars like Walt Kelly, Milt Gross, Dr. Seuss, Dan Gordon, and more, to primitive comics from terrible cartoonists (see Little Moron by Heck and Ilda above). This is why they made the Internet, people. Free comics.

Babylon Falling is a massive tumblr collection of original scans of counter culture, hip hop, and underground comics papers and magazines. You can spend a long, satisfying time digging through the archive, or just go to the front page and use the drop down menus to sort by type of image or publication. An awesome effort. Above art is “The Time Has Come Today” by Gilbert Johnson for San Francisco Express Times (1968) from this post, and the featured image above that is here.
