The treatment of the American Civil War in comics is virtually unknown among both the general public and academic community. This article discusses how the previously marginalized medium of comics has treated real historical events and the American Civil War in particular. It focuses on two comic books published in the 1950s and 60s – Two Fisted Tales Special Issue: Civil War published by EC Comics and Gilberton Company’s Classics Illustrated Special Issue: The War between the States. The former was published by a company known for its horror titles, and it is focused more on storytelling and artwork, while the latter represents a didactic effort of comic book publishers. Both are characterized by their historical accuracy, depicting the events of the bloody conflict.
