2001: A Space Odyssey in a Kid's Comic Book

In 1968, Howard Johnsons produced a children's menu and a comic book in conjunction with the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The comic explains the movie to Debbie and Robin, who are attending the premiere. It would have been nice if there had been a Howard Johnsons where I lived, because I couldn't make heads or tails out of the most of the movie. At the end of the comic, the children are acting like they don't want to give away the ending, but they are actually hiding the fact that they didn't understand a bit of it. Read the whole comic at Dreams of Space. Link -via Metafilter

Saw it the first week it was out in '68 - in Cinerama too!- and had to spend most of the movie explaining it to my parents (I had already read the book). Never saw the comic book tho, we didn't eat at HoJo much.
