JUMBO Comics #72 & World War 2!

Let's enjoy a bit of World War 2 era media, heavily flavored with a healthy (?) dose of propaganda. Be warned - this material is a product of the mindset of the time, and as such features stereotypical portrayals of a derogatory nature. Like it says "The past is ANOTHER PLANET" - i'm sure glad i wasn't alive then, that's fer sure.
