Star Spangled War Stories v1 #144 featuring Enemy Ace, 1969 - Dressed in skeletal garb, a French squadron seems to appear and disappear, wreaking havoc on Von Hammer's pilots. Neal Adams and Joe Kubert collaborate for the first time, combining their talents on this war story. A two-page panel features Enemy Ace upside down, his cockpit boldly framing an explosion in the distance. Adams' style emerges on a handful of pages and panels, but Kubert's inks dominate throughout the book. Even the layouts and sequences seem heavily influenced by the older artist. That aside, the results are both exciting and aesthetically pleasing. This is number 2 of 2 Star Spangled War issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert, Adams or Star Spangled War issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist, Top 10 Adams comicsKubert checklist or the original cover to this issue.
