A Biplane on Every Desktop

In the 1950s, comic books were considered immoral and indecent. Rightminded eisenhower-era parents feared reading comic books would led their offspring to moral decandence, homosexuality and even communism.

One result of this was that comic books were only sold in drugstores.

I have seen a page from one such magazine which looked forward to a new future. It said:

One day, there will be stores dedicated to comic books!
Yes, in 1999, a boy of the future will be able to ride his
atom-powered scooter out to the "comic book store" each and every week!

The future is often not an obvious progression of up-and-coming trends.

Now, if you dare... read the predictions of BlackBridge the Mysterous.
