A-to-Z of Adventure: "R" Is for "Redemption"

Since it is, after all, Easter, I'm going to wax religious for a moment. The comic above was in today's installment of Super Punch. I remember it well. As a regular Sunday School attendee and FOOM, I kept it in an honored place sandwiched between Capt. America and Daredevil.

The Cross and the Switchblade originally appeared on book-form in 1963. Authored by evangelist David Wilkerson, it recounts the true tale of his first five years as a minister in New York City, where he struggled to shepherd young people away from drugs and gangs.

The movie version starred Pat Boone and Erik Estrada.
