Image for Non-fiction Comics And Books

The vast majority of the books on our site fall heavily into the fictional category. That is unless you believe in talking animals, superpowered humans or corpses rising from the grave.

However, we do have a small collection of books that lay claim to be non-fiction. Let's be honest comic book publishers were never ones to let 'truth get in the way of a good story'. In a similar vein Government propaganda and giveaways are also represented here.

Stamps Comics followed a rather unusual theme. It used images pictured on postage stamps as a vehicle to explain historical events. If you have a practical mind, then why not try making some of the items in Model Fun. All the plans are there!

One very interesting and unique title, still running strong, is 'The Preventive Maintenance Monthly' produced the US Army for their technicians.

We have 64 titles and 1,117 issues in our 'Non-fiction Category' for you to enjoy.

However, times change and some of the art and verse in these books are most certainly not suitable for children more...
