Abstract
US comic books published about the Korean War during that conflict represented the war as an opportunity for US boys to become men through bloody, hand-to-hand combat. Korean War comic book representations of Asian men and women fell into a few basic types. The messages in US war comics were constrained by the need to avoid discouraging military recruitment.
