Comics For The People

Just received this, Government Issue: Comics for the People, 1940s-2000s!

An incredible compendium of comics created solely to inform the public of the dangers and evils that could befall them if they weren't careful.

Comics by the heavy-hitters like Milt Caniff, Walt Kelly, Charles Schulz, and Neal Adams appear within.

And check out this one about the hazards of mosquitos by Dr. Seuss and Munro Leaf.

The whole thing is a terrific -and at times disturbing- read as we get to see all the government-sponsored prejudices, propaganda, and fear-mongering we've weathered through the ages, all rendered beautifully in pen and ink by a formidable roster of talent.
