Online Archive of Gov't-Commissioned Comics

Well, this is cool--an online archive of comics commissioned by the US government starting in the 1940s. Click on a cover, get the pdf: for example, here are 1951's Bert the Turtle Says Duck and Cover and Foxhole On Your Front Lawn. Famous comics characters even show up from time to time: in Security is an Eye Patch (1968), Charlie Brown and Sally help the government educate readers about lazy eye syndrome.
