"Adventures Inside the Atom" - General Electric Public Relations Dept. - 1948

"Adventures Inside the Atom: The Story of Nuclear Power" was published in 1948 by the General Electric Company, Public Relations, Dept. 2-119.
 
Comic Book Cartography's dad would have been 12 when he acquired the copy we scanned, possibly at school. The comic wrestles atom splitting away from the bomb and slots it into the post-war parade of progress and prosperity. A black and white scan of the entire 16-page comic is available on the U.S. Department of Energy Website: http://tiny.cc/wht1k

This really encapsulates that "Our Friend the Atom" rah-rah optomism that was supposed to offset the constant reminder (sometimes in the pamphlet lying on the table next to this one) of the omnipresent threat of nuclear annihilation. I suspect that this juxtaposition has more than drugs to do with that marvelous ideological flexibility that baby boomers are wont to display.
Just asking ? I have a GE comic book called Adventures of the Atom
Printed 1948 by GE
Anyone know if it's worth any thing?

Thanks
