Our Fighting Forces #151 - Jack Kirby art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Our Fighting Forces v1 #151 featuring the Losers, 1974 - Known more for his Fourth World series during this era, Jack Kirby begins a lengthy run on this war title. His artistic style is graphic and expressionistic, unusual for the genre but not unappealing. Plenty of frenetic action fills the pages, but most impressive is a two page spread of Johnny Cloud, Captain Storm and Gunner & Sarge mere yards away from a Nazi platoon. The stories were likely inspired by Kirby's own combat experiences during World War Two. Joe Kubert, unfortunately, does a less than adequate cover. This is number 1 of 12 Our Fighting Forces issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
