World War I (1914 to 1918) had no comic books really, but check out the artwork and messages on the propaganda posters from the World War I era. The mix of artistry and political persuasion is incredible. With World War II, look at how cartoons displayed propaganda. For instance, I seem to recall seeing a clip of a cartoon with Porky Pig in a U.S. Navy uniform. The porkster was obviously used as a way to recruit people into the U.S. Navy. Comics, cartoons, and propaganda during World War II and the Cold War were very strongly linked.
