Review: Martian Comics #4

11-4full500The secret history of the 20th century! Did the red planet cause the Red Scare? Plus, the silent “Cargo Cult” takes us to ancient Egypt!

In Martian Comics #4, the devil reveals his unique history as a shaper of the American history, after World War II. Using the rise of communism to become an influential munitions maker, with help of his charisma field. The writers manage to include real characters like Joe McCarthy, and John F. Kennedy, which is a nice touch. Definitely a unique blend of real history with fiction.

The art work is stunning. The comic provides accurate portrayals of historical figures that are used in the story. I will admit the side story has some curious artwork as the writers and artists use some of the stranger aspects of Egyptian mythology to their advantage.
