Friday Fun – Christians Versus Communists


Bookmark and Share

Today is the latest edition of Friday Fun, where we look at a historical comic book that is tied into politics somehow.  Today’s entry is Two Faces of Communism.  Produced by the Christian Anti-Communism Crusade this 32 page comic book was released in 1961, well into the Cold War.  Based in Houston, Texas the CACC was formed by Australian-born Fred Schwarz.  Schwarz gained fame in the 50’s and 60’s as a red baiter.

Two Faces of Communism was one of only two comic books the CACC produced, but not the only anti-Communist literature it produced.

A great piece of hysteria and propaganda to come out of the Cold War.  Below is a sampling of some of the comic.
