Hansi: The Girl Who Loved the Swastika (the comic book)

There is a very unintentionally funny comic book adaptation of the true story HANSI the Girl Who Loved the Swastika:
"Don't ever forget Jesus!" This tearful admonition of her foster mother followed the teen-aged orphan girl as she began her trip to Prague. Maria ("Hansi") was the envy of all in her little Czechoslovakian village because she had won a scholarship to the Nazi school in the capital and would be able to serve the Fuhrer.
Thus Maria began a long journey in 1940 which was to lead her into the darkness of blind devotion to Hitler and the atheism of the Nazi system. The path led to a storybook romance...cruel disillusionment at Hitler's suicide...a traumatic awakening to the swastika's scourge across Europe and upon the Jews...a breathtaking escape from Communists...and a reemergence into the love and lordship of her mother's Jesus.
Eventually Maria and her family came to the United States. You will find chuckles vying with tears as you see the New World through the eyes of these immigrants, bewildered by the careless affluence of their adopted land and dazzled by the freedom to serve and teach one's deepest convictions."

Fortunately SPIRE CHRISTIAN COMICS did everything so fabulously wrong they could write about your dog dying and it would be funny and this is their adaptation of that true story of that wonderful, psychopathic young girl, Hansi. This is that 1975 comic brain fart in its entirety.

  1. Spire Archie comics readily turn up in the fifty cent bins, but HANSI has always been hard to find.
    I knew a Spire comics fan in 7th grade; he brought Spire Archies to school so that "more kids will know about good comics."
    Frank Doyle's early ‘70s LIFE WITH ARCHIE scripts had a similar, creepy Afterschool Special morality and attempts at social relevance. In the listing for LIFE WITH ARCHIE #141, the Grand Comics Database notes “An unusually high death count for an Archie story.”
