    1st printing. By Fredrik Stromberg. As one of the most effective and powerful forms of communication, it comes as no surprise that comic art has been misappropriated by governments, self-interest groups, do-gooders, and sinister organizations to spread their message. World War II comic book propaganda-with Superman, Batman, and Captain America raising war bonds, and bashing cartoon Japanese and Germans-was so ubiquitous that there was barely a US comic untainted by the war effort. The sub-textual sequential art continued well into the Cold War, with both sides producing comics extolling themselves and defaming the enemy. Softcover, 176 pages, PC/PB&W. Cover price $19.99.
