For many, Dr. Seuss is a common name yes? His classic children's books are famous in younger education school systems, or rather you may have just grew up on some of his books like Green Eggs & Ham, Cat in the Hat, and Horton Here's A Who (side rant: psyducking horrible movie, don't watch it.) However, did you know *anticipation builds* that he was a quote unquote hardcore political motherpsyducker when it came making political comics? This, my friends, I did not know until I stumbled across a few of them the other day.

Backstory: being of German and Jewish decent, the man known as Dr. Seuss wrote comics for his college newspaper, where there he was fired for his realness that he exuded in his comics. However, this didn't stop him. Going under the pseudonym "Dr. Seuss" - this is where he actually created the now famous name - he continued to submit his comics to the papers. Most of his comics centered around WWII or around issues around that period of time.

It goes without saying, but read these at your own discretion:

    These comics are incredible and I now like him much more. They even make up for his terrible stories.
