Foxhole #1 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
Foxhole v1 #1, 1954 - In an era of heroic themes, Jack Kirby provides this sobering, realistic war cover. The scene is the aftermath of D-Day, on one of any number of beaches in northern France. Battered beyond recognition, a GI pens a little to his mother without complaint. Kirby draws upon his own combat experiences to forge an indelible image. This is number 1 of 6 Foxhole issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Foxhole issues. See also this blog's Jack Kirby checklist.
