Godless Communism: The Comic

Cover_01tnFrom the Authentic History Center, via boingboing:

Terrific anti-communist comic series from the early 1960s that you can flip through… The best stuff is from the first issue, where the comic takes up that age old American propaganda tactic – one family’s story, their life in the U.S.S.A. (Highlights: the parish priest is sent to a reeducation labor camp, mom has to go to work, and dad has to cut down trees at gunpoint in northern wisconsin). After this, the issues head into the history of Communism from Marx on – great scene with old Karl arguing with his drunken college chums about the merits of Dr. Hegel’s lectures. La plus ca change…

 

Oh yeah, check out the letter from J.Edgar Hoover that kicks off the festivities.

Also, don’t miss the hot Commie teacher who takes over at Soviet School 32 (formerly, St. Joseph’s)… (All right, she’s not so hot in frame 3… I think they’ve deliberately uglied her up there… But in the first two frames! I’m gonna start working the red armband, that’s for sure…)
