"NIGHT OF THE COMBIES"
With the cold war at it’s height, the “Red Menace” began to take center stage as Hoverboy’s primary adversary.
In this story, Stalin’s robot clone uses a book on Voodoo magic stolen from Hitler’s personal library to raise the dead into a unstoppable Socialist army.
Outnumbered by the hundreds, Hoverboy is near certain defeat when he takes the fight to New York’s West 5th Avenue. Bullets can’t stop them, but once their Commie eyes lay sight on American consumables, Stalin’s power is broken and the reign of the Com-bies is over!
The Stalin robo-clone escapes to the moon and isn’t seen again until the story “Green Cheese and Commies” from HOVERBOY: SPACE AMERICAN G.I. in 1962.
