Here’s a fun blog post, in which Brian Cronin shows that Will Eisner & Co. presciently predicted the bombing of Pearl Harbor in National Comics No. 18—which was published in November 1941 and, obviously, produced many months before that. The story was written by Gill Fox, with artwork by Lou Fine.
The only thing Eisner got wrong? He had Germany attacking the Hawaiian military base, not Japan!
Worth checking out!
