The Allied victory in World War II relied on far more than courageous soldiers. One of the most overlooked aspects of these efforts involved a surprising initiative - comic book propaganda.

Ultimately those comic book characters proved to be persuasive icons in the war’s most colorful and indelible propaganda campaign.Presenter: Dr. James Kimble, Associate Professor of Communication, Seton Hall University.
