Hey, Comrade Spaceman, won't you please take me along? I won't do anything wrong...

Yesterday I showed you some of the Mars Attacks cards from 1962. I think in tone they represent the paranoia of the Cold War against the Soviet Union. Flash forward to 1967, and we still had trouble with the commies, this time in Vietnam, where we were fighting a war. This issue of Flying Saucers has two stories about communists, aliens and flying saucers. Am I detecting a pattern here? You tell me, tovarisch!
