Cold War Chinese Propaganda Cartoons

Posted by Michael Pinto on Aug 31, 2008 in Comic Books |


I just came across an treasure trove of Anti-American political cartoons from China which date from 1958 through 1960. Shown above is a cartoon making fun of NASA after the USSR launch of Sputnik in 1957. What’s interesting about this selection of comics is that you see references to President Eisenhower but also references to those out of the scene like General Douglas MacArthur and Winston Churchill.

Found via cartoonist Rob Tornoe (you can find him on Twitter too).
