While browsing around on Wikipedia, I came across the entry for a Hungarian-born cartoonist. That's pretty rare for me while on Wikipedia since I often wile away the hours hitting the "Random Article" button.
Reading through the story of the Hungarian's life, I was intrigued by a link. It took me to the Web version of his most famous book: "The Red Primer for Children and Diplomats," an editorial cartoon version of the rise of Communism.
It's a critical look at one of the dominant political forces of the 20th century, but it's an entertaining one in a "Mad" magazine sort of way.
You can see more about the book, plus read the whole of "Red Primer" at Comics on the Brain!

Thanks for the link. It is very Mad Magazine like; I'm glad to see it available. I was amused to see the pdf hosted by rightwingnews.com, though. Does anyone still believe that there are a significant number of left-leaning Americans who are Communists or Communist sympathizers? It's ridiculous. The Cold War has been over for years: we won. Time to move on, guys.
