Interesting article about atomic war that refers to this comic book: http://www.wsu.edu/~brians/nuclear/1chap.htm

This story surely was created as a result of early speculation surrounding the Manhattan Project. By 1942, all aspects of the media were given strict orders by the war department barring any speculation about the development of an atomic bomb. Somehow, the publication of this book went under the radar.
