Our Fighting Forces #146 - Alex Toth art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Our Fighting Forces v1 #146 featuring the Losers, 1974 - Winner of an industry short story award, "Burma Sky" showcased the talents of both writer Archie Goodwin and artist Alex Toth. Retreating from Rangoon during the 1940s, an American fighter pilot takes up his WWI-era biplane to ensure the safety of his comrades. Toth displays a astonishing knowledge of aircraft, from the drawings of hangars and airfields to the aerial dogfights. Despite the number of small panels, the artist uses each to full effect, telling the story with clarity and poignancy. Joe Kubert's cover is largely adequate. Other artists in this issue include John Severin. This is number 2 of 2 Our Fighting Forces issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth, Kubert or Our Fighting Forces issues.
