“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness … “
Chances are, most Americans have heard these words before, but it’s not every day that we stop to appreciate their meaning. It was the declaration of these truths that led to the freedoms of today. Even those that seem the simplest to us now, like the freedom to create, share and read comics, were made possible by the bravery of our founding fathers on July 4, 1776, when they signed the Declaration of Independence.
Although there are many traditions that take place on the Fourth of July every year, like backyard cookouts and fireworks shows, Independence Day is a holiday created to celebrate our great nation. In honor of “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” we’ve compiled a patriotic collection of July Fourth-themed comics to share with you, celebrating everything from fireworks to freedom (with a side of grilling disasters and questionable firecracker practices!).
Cheers to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness! Wishing all of our readers a SAFE and FUN holiday!
