Reading Room: BRANT CRAIG "Red Devils of Mars"

In the 1950s "Red" usually meant Communists...
...or a Communist-like threat, even in stories set in the future!
Add how the "Red" Martians set up an impenetrable "ionic curtain" (instead of Iron Curtain),  and the parallels are obvious to anyone.
This never-reprinted tale from Youthful's Captain Science #6 (1951) was probably illustrated by Bill Molno and Rocco Mastroserio.
The writer is unknown.
