Juggling and Comic Books: A Pictorial Gallery – Part 2

As I stated in Part 1 of this series, I’ve been a juggler for 36 years, but I’ve been a comic book collector for even longer than that. Therefore, I was very glad to receive a donation to the Museum of Juggling History that combines these two endeavors. Darrell W. Toomey donated a collection of comic books with juggling featured on the cover. This sparked the idea of writing two articles on the inclusion of juggling on comic book covers and by comic book characters. Comic books can typically be split into two categories: Superhero comics and non-superhero comics. For Part 1, we took a look at juggling in superhero comics. In this article, I’ll share the 35 non-superhero comic books that I’m aware of that have juggling on their covers.

Other Comics

If you know of other comics with juggling featured on the cover, please pass along photos to me and they’ll be added to this article.
