Since the 1940s, government agencies have published comics to disseminate public information. Comics legends Will Eisner and Milton Caniff made comics for the Army. Li’l Abner joined the Navy. Smokey Bear had his own comic—and so did Zippy, the USPS mascot. Dozens of artists and writers, known and unknown, were recruited to create comics about every aspect of American life. Whether you want the lowdown on psychological warfare or the highlights of working in the sardine industry, Government Issue by Richard Graham shows that the government has a comic for you!
