The funny pages are the best part of the newspaper, aren’t they?

At least they used to be.

The fine folks at the Duplex Planet tipped us off to the website of all-things-comic-related collector Mark Lansdown. Here’s a peek at what Mark describes as “a free reference and research guide for the vintage pinbacks from the 1890s to the 1950s.”

Included are several really nifty pins for the Just Kids Safety Club from the 1930s Albany Times Union.
