This article explores the use of religion in three different Christian Cold War era comic books, with particular focus upon their reflection of the social borders reconstruction of American identity. Two of the comics are dramatic what-if scenarios of communist takeovers of the United States printed by Catholic educators. The third comic is an anti-Catholic tract linking the Vatican to the communist party. Engaging the relationship between Catholicism and communism, these comics reflect different perspectives concerning American’s religious landscape and its relationship to the nation’s changing identity.
