Racial sensitivity in comic books.

Here are a few more panels from Tip Top Comics #158 (Sept/Oct 1949) that I didn’t include with that previous post, since it didn’t seem terribly appropriate.

These panels are from the “Broncho Bill” story, and yes, I know it was a product of the time, and that in cowboy ‘n’ Indian stories, the Indians were gonna be the bad guys…but still, after reading Nancy and Sluggo and the Katzenjammer Kids in the same book? Yikes:

…And those last two panels ended this exciting installment, but with the promise that we’d get to see more authentic Native American portrayals in the very next issue of Tip Top.
