Greetings, comic art fan!
I bring you a re-posting of the 2nd story ever posted here in 2009,
because some may not have seen it, and because even if you have,
it's so good that it is worthy of seeing again and again.
Enjoy now some of the most beautifully rendered black and white comic art ever published
by the amazing and legendary Mr. Russ Heath.
In 1966, America was embroiled in it's seventh year of a little conflict called the Viet Nam War. It would be nine more years before the American troop withdrawal and the fall of Saigon. That was the political and social climate that year when Warren Publications put out the fourth and final issue of it's excellent military-themed black & white comic magazine BLAZING COMBAT. Each issue featured covers by Frank Frazetta, and interior content by some of the best writers and artists of the day. The story we feature today is by one of the greatest artists of war comics, if not THE greatest. Take a moment now to enjoy the little story of a battle for a hilltop in Italy, 1944, told as only Archie Goodwin and Russ Heath could.
