Friday Fun – Christians Versus Communists
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.
