    A bit unnerving.

    I read the first page.

    The communist attacked the representative government. I thought the Bolshviks killed the Russian tsar.

    Am I wrong or what?

    No. You're not wrong. There was no representative government. Nor was this just a few men who convinced the people to revolt. Also, you will notice the assumption here is that the soviets came in and took over without a shot being fired. But remember, this was in 1961 and its a comic book.

    This Godless Communism

    it may have been the part about "Godless" that caught the Catholic interest ... to bad that is all they saw.

    A couple of years ago I got into a conversation with some Russians about my age. According to them, the US was not particularly villified during the cold war. At least not to the extent the USSR was villified here. Of course, this conversation took place on my home turf so it is not improbable they were down playing it. I do find it hard to believe their propaganda machine was any less vehement than ours.
