Reading Room: AMAZING ADVENTURES "A-Day"

Are you scared because you think the world is on the brink of war?
Ha!
Back in the 1950s, we lived with the concept on a daily basis...and even told comic book tales about it!
This never-reprinted tale from Ziff-Davis' Amazing Adventures #1 (1950) offered some interesting, and (to some) subversive messages.
Illustrated by long-time pro Ogden Whitney, it shows how, unfortunately, human nature can destroy a potential Utopia...while ignoring how current technology wasn't (and still isn't) up to keeping "cheap" atomic power reasonably safe.
Something to ponder, even six decades later...
