The Two-Hundred-Thirteenth Greatest Panel in the History of Comics

This is a weird trend I've noticed reading a lot of WW2 comics - I've seen a bunch of examples of heroes fighting Nazis in Europe who, at a certain point, get transferred over to battling the Japs in the Pacific, since that's more marketable.

I understand why this happened, but the implied racial politics make me deeply uncomfortable.

Its always felt odd to me as well as you'd have thought the US public would have had more anger towards the Japanese. My guess is a combination of politics & the embodiment of Hitler as a supervillain more than any single representative of Japan.
