Frank Frazetta's the Adventures of the Snow Man

by Frank Frazetta, Forward by Frank Frazetta, Jr. Milwaukie, OR: Dark Horse Comics, 2015

This was created and originally published by Frank Frazetta when he was 15 years old - over seventy years ago. This comic is a testament to the artist/author and perception of American culture, stereotypes, and propaganda of World War II as it was written one year after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

It addresses social studies themes such as: historical events; culture and cultural diversity; continuity and change among and between cultures; citizenship and civic ideals and practices; and global connections.

A fascinating look at how Americans viewed Japanese, Germans, Canadians and Americans.
