These works are not comic books, but are government publications that are illustrated with cartoons or comic strips. Many of the illustrations are by well-known cartoonists. Sometimes there is a fine line between an illustratred book and what might be considered a full-fledged comic book or graphic novel.
These works are arranged alphabetically by the name of the department or agency.
Intended for industrial workers, these pocket-sized booklets published by the Bureau of Labor Standards are enlivened by cartoon-style illustrations featuring a hapless worker named "Butch." The illustrations were created by Bartholomew Robert Valosio, Supervising Illustrator in the Department of Labor's Office of Information.
