Abstract

This book explores the relationship between American superhero comics and propaganda during World War II. It contends that superhero comics were an important means by which the war was represented to the American people and argues that the ideological links between superhero comics and propaganda resides in the imagery and rhetoric they both employed in order to fashion, maintain and reshape conceptions of identity, power and morality for political purposes.
