These scans are from a one-shot propaganda comic. Created in 1947 by an uncredited writer and artist, and issued by the Catechetical Guild Education Society, a Roman Catholic publisher, Is This Tomorrow envisions, step by step, how a communist takeover of America might take place. While the scenario isn't entirely implausible (we're not talking anywhere near Chick Tract-level distortion of reality, here), it does call for more than a little suspension of disbelief in places. And snark. Let's not forget the snark.

This 48-page comic is now in the public domain (scans courtesy of ComicBookPlus.com).

The Photographer: Into war-torn Afghanistan with Doctors Without Borders

The Photographer
was published in English by First Second books in May 2009, but I only recently borrowed it from my library (libraries are awesome). Like some of my favorite comic books (Palestine, Barefoot Gen, Persepolis, Maus), it's a historical autobio. Middle Eastern history always confuses me, but this book does a good job of explaining what was going on in 1986 Afghanistan. I know there's not much of a demand for this kind of work here, but it was such a good book that I just had to share it.

From 1955, a bit of a rarity; a docucomic drawn by Graham Ingels. From one of EC's last sputters before the Comics Code.

"He has the strength of ten tigers.
You never find him, he finds you.
He has a thousand eyes and a thousand ears.
His voice turns blood into ice.
He who sees the his face, dies a horrible death.

He is the Ghost who Walks. The Phantom. The Man Who Cannot Die."

He also sometimes team up with America's Coolest Founding Father. Like in this story.

I've been watching the events in Iran--what one can find out through the web, because the networks are blind--and was reminded of some work by Garth Ennis and Alan Moore that, at least in scraps, helps give a little bit of context to our historical place in this whole mess.

Someone mentioned this in relation to my last post on Iran's history. Found it, so here it is.
