Design of the Week Redux USA IS READY!

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another...unless it does really well, in which case we retain it for one more week!
This week: As hawks beat the drums of war against everyone from Iran to North Korea, we offer a kool cover from a one-shot comic produced just before we entered World War II...U.S.A. is Ready!
The book itself was re-presented on our "brother" RetroBlog War: Past, Present & Future several years ago.
You can read those posts HERE.
Besides being the basis of the perfect kitschy Memorial Day gift for the veteran in your life, it's a symbol of a time when we were ready to fight because we were the Good Guys and we had to oppose the Bad Guys simply because they were Bad and we were Good.
Unfortunately, since WWII, our military efforts have not always been for the right reasons.
And now, the same conservatives who created the current power vacuum in the Mid-East want us to go back and screw things up further.
But, let's look back on a simpler time when Good and Evil were clearly defined, and we knew that, eventually, we would have to enter a war we had no part in creating.
