WWII Comic Book Day

The Second World War was not just fought on the frontlines. The sales of comic books increased markedly during World War II. They were cheap, portable and had inspirational, patriotic stories of good triumphing over evil. The tales very much reflected the events and values of the time. Pro-American characters were popular, particularly Captain America, a superhero whose entire creation was based on aiding the country’s war effort.

Learn how heroes like Superman, Captain America, Wonder Woman and more were used to sell war bonds, inspire conservation, and spread the message of doing your part in the war effort.
