Weird War Tales v1 #2, 1971 - During World War II, a woman dreams about the death of her sweetheart. The cover design re-uses the opening panel of Joe Kubert's brief tale (with the addition of the fallen soldier). While competently done, the artist's framing pages are even better (later reprinted in Weird War Tales #36). A withered old man serves as narrator, representing the latter part of the war/horror format. While the book contains mostly reprints, there is new material as well. Other artists in this issue include Reed Crandall and Frank Thorne. See today's posts or more Kubert or Weird War Tales issues. See also this blog's Joe Kubert checklist.
