Weird War Tales v1 #5, 1971 - Previously containing reprints, Weird War Tales begins inserting more original works. Joe Kubert sets the tone with an eerie, astral projection-themed cover (note that the name on the ghost's uniform references fellow artist Neal Adams). Alex Toth makes his debut on the title, deftly illustrating the framing pages (see interior page below). Gritty and raw, his artwork perfectly bookends the stories. Other artists in this issue include Russ Heath. This is number 1 of 3 Weird War Tales issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert, Toth or Weird War Tales issues.
