Summary
"An action-oriented medium, comics have long used wars - real and fictional - as narrative fodder, often with a strong message attached. Buried in rare comics published during the Cold War were powerful war, fantasy, and sci-fi stories that strongly condemned war and the bomb, boldly calling for peace. While a few comics of the time portrayed the horrors of war, the more blatant anti-war stories were largely unappreciated or so cloaked in metaphor that they went unnoticed by contemporary audiences. Today, we can more fully appreciate the efforts of the fine writers and cartoonists who were crying out for peace in their - and our - time. Journey back with us now, and discover the secret, surprising history of anti-war comics with this marvelously curated collection! -- Page [4] of cover
