Description: Back in the 1950s during the “Cold War” every new day beckoned the possibility of the end of the world. Kids grew up in the shadow of bomb shelters and were treated to daily lessons at school on what to do in the event of a nuclear attack.  Americans were besieged by constant reminders to police our borders, to carefully watch out for “foreigners” who might be spies, and to be ever vigilant in preparing to combat the “red” menace of communism.

 Comic books of this era played on these fears with stories of atomic war and world war III.  This new historic reprint looks back at those good ole days, which can be viewed in the perspective of today’s political climate.

This volume reprints the complete runs of Atomic War! and World War III and can be read merely as great action/adventure stories, classic “war” comics or as an eerie, unanticipated commentary on today’s tribulations.  SPECIAL NOTE: if these extremely rare books were purchased at your local comic shop they would cost well over $1000 in low grade condition!

With special introduction by Arne Flaten of Purdue University.
