How (Not) to Defend a City

Last week I mentioned some old comics, Atomic War and World War III, that featured depictions of nuclear war in an effort to get people to buy defense bonds.

They featured tons of treachery and lots of horrible dying explosion, followed by last-ditch heroism. Naturally.

Some parts of these old comics are rather nifty. Here, for instance, is a weird-looking yet somewhat realistic imaginary Soviet plane.

(I know it's imaginary because jet bombers don't generally have machine gun turrets. Also, that's a big darned plane, though not the biggest I've seen.)

And then we have moments like this one.

Wait for it...

Wait for it...


Well, I suppose the city was saved from being reduced to rubble, but it's probably not going to be fun to live there...
