What it is not realistic to hang off your burning plane and fire your .45 at your pursuer.

Bored tonight so I'm posting this. Picked this up a couple of years ago in a $3 bin.  Don't collect war books, but I really love this cover (not to mention I was floored by the condition).  Combat 21 (1966).

Picked this up recently. These DC war covers are just so great - over the top fantasy, or are they?

One of great cover arts was done by Russ Heath.....now I would not find this copy anywhere. Not a single copy can be found on eBay, World Wide Comics, Comic Connect, High Grade Comics, Reece's Rare Comics, Metropolis Comics and all others. Two years ago, there were plenty of them and now it's impossible to find them. I am luck to own CGC 8.0 with me.

No doubt one of the greatest Big-5 covers. . .one of the greatest covers of ANY genre, title, or era. It's just a killer. And those are BOTH beautifully presenting 8.0s that look a grade or two higher. Love that book all day long, 365 days a year.

That is one of my favorite DC war comic covers too. Realistic or not, it's totally BA, and I don't mean Bronze Age.

How's about Four Star Battle Tales #1?  I found one from $5 bin.

Four Star Battle Tales packed an incredible amount of great war artists and stories into five issues. It's particularly heavy on Mort Drucker art but you also get Kubert, Heath, Andru/Esposito, Grandenetti, and others, including a Krigstein story.
