Shot Out of the Sky
When I was a boy (man I say that a lot these days), when I was a boy you could get a big handful of comics for less than a buck. And getting a big handful of DC war mags was worth its weight in .50 caliber bullets. Joe Kubert and Russ Heath were so great in packing each page with pulse-pounding blood and thunder (though come to think of it, we rarely saw any blood--if ever). Each panel was straight up jammed with seemingly authentic detail. These two comics below were my favorite covers of hundreds of other DC war favorites.
