Our Fighting Forces #160 - Jack Kirby art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Our Fighting Forces v1 #160 featuring the Losers, 1975 - In a small Russian village, a young Nazi sympathizer joins their ranks as a machine-gunner and executioner. Staying at his mother's house, disguised as German officers, the Losers must deliver a crucial letter and leave before they're discovered. Jack Kirby delivers a fine tale of espionage and traitors, his artwork largely meeting expectations. The artist's last two-page spread of the series is a brutal one, depicting a mass execution of Russian villagers. Joe Kubert's cover is acceptable but only partially references the story. This is number 10 of 12 Our Fighting Forces issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
