Petz und Mimi, by G. Seyler 1952

G. Seyler spent most of his life in the DDR (German Democratic Republic), the communist part of Germany. He contributed to the Sunday supplement of newspaper Berliner Zeitung, where he created the comic 'Petz und Mimi', which was clearly meant to support the Russian Aufbau and the five-year-plan in East-Germany after the second World War. The strip featured not only a friendly bear (Petz, symbol of Russia), but depicted corrupt burocrats and criminal saboteurs.
