Weird War Tales v1 #1, 1971 - Comprised of war stories, this series begins features reprints from previous decades. Eventually, Weird War Tales would produce its own original material. For this inaugural issue, Joe Kubert provides a jarring new cover. Variations of a skeletal soldier would be used frequently throughout the run. Especially eerie is Kubert's masthead, which uses corpses to fill some of the interior letters. Inside, his framing pages are outstanding, combining the more frightening elements of this of the war and horror genres (see interior page below). Also included in this issue are silver age stories by Kubert (Star Spangled War Stories #71) and Russ Heath.
