All American Men of War v2 #29 - Wally Wood, Joe Kubert art

All American Men of War v2 #29, 1956 - Wally Wood's story tells of the dangers of building and crossing a bridge during wartime. Not among his better works, many of the faces and figures are stiffly drawn (see interior page below). In Joe Kubert's tale, a GI must bring in a live prisoner for interrogation. The artwork is competent and dependably laid out. Though relatively early in his career, Kubert demonstrates a penchant for war comics. Other artists in this issue include Irv Novick, Ross Andru, Mike Esposito and Jerry Grandenetti. This is number 1 of 2 All American Men of War issues with Wood art and/or covers.
