Looking at how comics, aimed at children and young people, were used as propaganda during wartime, to instil confidence and boost morale. Thinking about how more transparent things appear now, and how we're led to believe we're being kept informed through various unbiased media channels, but that social media has its own framework in place to deliver subtle political messages to target audiences, again echoing the political side to war. It's interesting to note the difference in tone, the 'morale-boosting' of then versus the 'blaming and shaming' of now, differing attempts in controlling citizen behaviour.
