Comics and Tracts

Comics haven't only been used to entertain, but also as education tools and even as wartime propaganda.

Classic examples of comics as propaganda include the early Captain America comics.

A modern example of comics being used as propaganda include "Chick Tracts", which try to convince the reader to become a Christian.

Odds are that anyone living in a city has seen a Chick Tract, so you'd know how they try and make their message understandable.

(Before you ask, I don't believe in God. I used to, but I stopped shortly after my mother died.)
