"Classic Propaganda"

It being the primary mission of this blog to cover the intersection of comic books and foreign policy, I can’t avoid linking to this issue of All-Star Comics from the 1940s in which the Justice Society of America explains the truth about Germany to one confused young American. The full issue comes to me via the comment thread to thsi post from John Holbo. It’s interesting that this is so much less plausible than the propaganda mounted on behalf of the Iraq War even though intervention into World War II seems eminently justifiable on grounds that don’t involve this sort of craziness.
