Stories from the Bible, 1972

(Continued from 1971)

The latest retellings of these stories, begun in June 1966, continue with new versions of "Elisha The Healer" (6 installments) and "Daniel" (5 installments).

There was no Bible installment for July 1972. I always wonder why that sort of thing happens.

There was ONE more installment of STORIES FROM THE BIBLE, in the January 1973 issue.  Then, it vanished, for a year-and-a-half! In its place was a new series, "THE RELIGIOUS EMBLEMS PROGRAM", which had more to do with Scouts than religion.  I've decided to run the final BIBLE strip on this page, so I can pick up the revival fresh on the next blog page.

By the way, this was only the 2nd time the story of "Jonah" was featured in the series.  The previous time was 10 years earlier-- in February 1963!

  1. I hate to do it because I'm his biggest fan, but I'm going to cast doubt on ALL the Swan attributions here and in the last year or two. It's difficult to be certain from the smallish scans, but I'm just not seeing ANY on the Curt Swan trademarks.
