Our Fighting Forces #161 - Jack Kirby art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Our Fighting Forces v1 #161 featuring the Losers, 1975 - Plagued by nightmares, an English major returning to Burma where his regiment was massacred. The artwork slightly wanes in enthusiasm as Jack Kirby's run on this title draws near. The coloration on the first page is unusual and inconsistent, most likely a printing error. Some panels are simpler than others, with varying degrees of detail. Joe Kubert's hurried cover is completely unrelated to the story. This is number 11 of 12 Our Fighting Forces issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert, Kirby or Our Fighting Forces issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist or Kubert checklist.
