Marines In Battle #7 - Joe Kubert art

Marines In Battle v1 #7, 1955 - The final story of the issue, "Counter Attack" retells the strategic importance of three hills during the Korean War. Joe Kubert makes his one and only contribution to this war title, atypically falling short of expectations. There is little to recognize of the artist's pencils, due to the incompatible inks of Seymour Moskowitz. The layouts are crowded and the panels too small and numerous. This example reinforces the argument that Kubert's artwork looks best when he inks his own pencils. Other artists in this issue include John Forgione, Jack Abel, Dick Ayers, Joe Sinnott and Russ Heath (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Marines In Battle issues with Kubert art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert or Marines In Battle issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist.
