Constantine Andoniou has begun posting his 1986 Masters Thesis “Cultural Propagana & Stereotyping in Children’s Comics” about content of children’s comics published in Greece in the 1980s.

A content analysis of children’s comic magazines, published in Greece in mid 1980s, attempted to provide the evidence that the themes these comics are preoccupied with, reflect values and attitudes of the dominant Anglo-American capitalist structure. The main concern of the thesis is the analysis of the message conveyed through comics and its origin. The results indicate that, comic culture can be seen as one of the forms of modern neo-colonialist attempts to affect and form human opinion and consciousness therefore, comics can be characterized as powerful cultural invaders.
