Today in Comics History: Johnny Everyman means well but OH MY GOD PLEASE STOP CALLING HIM BONGO, JOHNNY

Panels from the Johnny Everyman story "The Spirit of '46" in World's Finest Comics #26 (January-February 1947), script by Jack Schiff, pencils and inks by John Daly

Happy Independence Day, all the citizens of the Republic of the Philippines! And on behalf of us here in the lower eastern 48, I humbly apologize for Johnny Everyman and the name "Bongo."

"It isn't the American flag! I know that much!"

Congratulations on knowing the minimum possible amount of information about that flag, kid!
