I’m Not Sure Whether to Laugh or Puke

Captain America Goes to War Against Drugs!I was reading an issue of Reason Magazine that I have left over from an old YAL activism kit, and I came across this disturbing little gem. The article links to a page on the University of Nebraska’s website where they have catalogued government propaganda in the form of comic books. Brian Doherty says in the Reason article, 

There are some famous faces here: Spider-Man, Dennis the Menace, and Li’l Abner were all drafted as propaganda agents, turning this joyous art form into a tool of a state that apparently believes its responsibilities are limitless.

The comics on the Fedinflation, and monetary policy are particularly interesting in their silliness. Here are some choice excerpts (below the jump).
