WAR COMICS
49 issues ~ Dec/1950-Sept/1957
One of the Atlas titles that transitioned from pre-code to code
Not as eloquent as Kurtzman's EC war titles but the pre-code
Atlas war titles are the grittiest comics ever produced!
They remind me of Sam Fuller's two 1951 war films
Steel Helmet and Fixed Bayonets...and vice versa
