The Lad was an American cartoonist who died in 1995.
It was created by Chuck Jones and published by Archie Comics in 1964.
Jones’ work became the cornerstone of a comic-book renaissance in the 1960s and 1970s.
His characters and the way they talked, laughed and had personalities were hugely influential.
Jones died in 2015, and the Lad was a beloved icon in the comics community.
But that legacy is being slowly erased by a new wave of media that are trying to make our youth more disconnected from reality.
The Lad’s iconic characters have been erased from the lives of younger generations.
But the characters of the early days of the internet still resonate in our lives, and that’s what the Lad Bible is all about.
It’s a series of short stories, each with a unique voice, that tell the story of the Lad and his world, from the earliest days of his creation to his journey to the internet.
It includes short stories about people from the internet who live today and have shaped the world.
This is part one in a three-part series about the Lad, his work and his legacy.
It’ll be coming up in the next couple of weeks, and if you’ve got a few minutes to spare, why not check out part two?
