Bought myself an early Christmas present. Collects all four issues of Blazing Combat

I've been reading through this in dribs and drabs and it's really good. The stories are much more thought provoking than your typical war story being produced by DC at the time. The art is fantastic. The Russ Heath story might be one of the finest things he ever drew. Highly recommend a copy of this book if you love war comics. It's truly a shame that Blazing Combat only went four issues.

The past year I've been fortunate enough to get a few nice books with Drucker art and I've developed a deep appreciation for how good he was in this genre.  Not that I'm saying he wasn't good elsewhere, because I think he's just outstanding as an artist.  But when I see his war stuff, I see genius level stuff.  (Kubert cover)

I was inspired by PKJ's four comic photo, so thought I'd share my own!  It's been years since I pulled these out to photograph them.  I think I'm the only boardie in this group that collects the yellow Signature Series DC war books.  I have the largest collection of Kubert and Heath signed books from when I met them years ago.  Hope everyone is doing well.  (thumbsu
