1954 comic asks "Are you a Red Dupe?"

At the height of the Red Scare, comic books were facing censorship. EC Comics tried to point out that censorship was un-American with a house ad in The Haunt of Fear drawn by the great Jack Davis and written by Albert B. Feldstein.


But the comic book industry caved in to the Comics Code soon after that, and EC quit publishing comics.

ETA: I quite admire "Some of these people are no-goods, some are do-gooders, some are well-meaning, and some are just plain mean."
