Doing a little Twitter reading this MLK Day and Jay Smooth says "Reading about the most important *comic book* of the civil rights movement". And so I do, too, reading a post on a Seattle PI blog about a comic called "Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story" that was distributed in the late '50s. A fascinating story, but (unless I'm just missing it) the blog post doesn't really give a link to read the whole comic. It's here, at Ethan Persoff's site. And, sure, you can just go there and click through the pages. But there are standard ways comics are distributed these days and so I thought I'd make it into a modern eComic as my little MLK present to you. So here it is in English and Spanish as a PDF and as a CBZ (for reading in your favorite eComic reader).
