That last post set the mood to show one of DC War Comics mainstay pictorial themes: mainly lone soldiers blasting them fighter planes right outta the sky! Maybe somewhere somehow that's happened in real life in some theater of war, but these guys continued to do it in every couple of stories and in a multitude of covers, in one outrageous situation after another. These are by no means all of Kubert's versions, just some of the ones I had on hand (click here to check out the ones posted much earlier on this blog). Kubert made it all so believable.
The one below is my favorite of this group, just cuz it's SO outrageous!

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
