Blazing Gallery of Battle Stars

For many, Joe Kubert's primary legacy consists of war stories of the Silver Age, rendered with believability even when the writing of the stories themselves was sometimes formulaic and overwritten, and . . . well . . . unbelievable. Such is the world of comix—but for me, Joe's art always sold the story and always made the book worth collecting.
