Guest Blogging: Galactus and the Cuban Missile Crisis

Galactus Imperliasm 05Another article of mine has been published by the fantastic Sequential Research & Literacy Organization (aka,, this one about some of the imperialistic themes featured in the all-time classic Stan Lee/Jack Kirby Galactus Trilogy storyline originally featured in the Fantastic Four series. For this submission, I use this classic three issue arc, which marked the first appearance of the planet-eating Galactus, and his herald,the Silver Surfer, as an allegory for the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1963. You’ll probably be surprised to see who I believe plays the role of the U.S./Soviet Union/Cuba based on Lee/Kirby’s text. Please check it out, and all of the other wonderful articles on Sequart.
