Back in the 1950s during the “Cold War” every new day hinted at the possibility of the end of the world. Kids grew up in the shadow of bomb shelters and were treated to daily lessons at school on what to do in the event of a nuclear attack. Americans were besieged by constant reminders to police our borders, to carefully watch out for “foreigners” who might be spies, and to be ever vigilant in preparing to combat the “red” menace of communism. Lou Cameron's fine artwork is featured in almost every issue.

Comic books of the fifties played on the fear of atomic war and World War III. This new historic reprint looks back at those good ole days! This volume reprints the complete runs of Atomic War! (Ace, 1952-53) and World War III (also from Ace, 1953) and can be read as great action/adventure stories, classic “war” comics or as an eerie, unanticipated commentary on today’s tribulations.

SPECIAL NOTE: if these extremely rare books were purchased at your local comic shop they would cost well over $1000 in even low grade condition!

World War III #2 and Atomic War #4 are both mentioned and pictured in the notorious Parade of Pleasure, the early 1950s muck-raking book that took on the same subjects as Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent.
