Hogan's Heroes #1

For a long while in the 1960's and into the '70's, Dell Comics published several different adaptations of popular TV shows of the day. From June, 1966 to September, 1967, they put out a comic book version of one of my all time favorite shows, the great Hogan's Heroes. The creators did a pretty good job bringing the zaniness of the show to the comic page. Most of the art was by comic book veteran Sal Trapani. He did a good job combining the humor style with a little bit of WWII action. It only lasted eight issues before it was cancelled. There was a ninth issue but it was a reprint of #1. They're pretty hard to find nowadays but it's worth the effort. It's a very fun read.
