Blazing Combat #3

One of the most celebrated comics of all time was Warren's short lived war series Blazing Combat. It was groundbreaking for its time due to its realistic and gritty war stories. It only lasted 4 issues, but the book was noted for its breathtaking art from greats such as Frank Frazetta (who drew this gorgoeus cover), Angelo Torres, Gene Colan, Reed Crandall, Jerry Grandenetti, Alex Toth, Dan Adkins, Gray Morrow, and John Severin. The issues are somewhat hard to find today and expensive, but worth it. Many of the stories were written by Archie Goodwin, who also edited the book. It's a must for fans of the war genre, right up there with the great DC war books which were being produced at the same time. The issue is cover dated April, 1966.
