Our Army at War #249 - Wally Wood art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Our Army at War v1 #249, 1972 - As World War II draws to a close, a young British fighter pilot aches for his first confirmed kill. Wally Wood’s rendition of warplanes is comparable to that of his colleagues Toth and Kubert. His story begins with bird’s eye view of landed Spitfires, perfectly aligned in perspective. Despite the short page length, Wood expends equal effort to both the aerial dogfight scenes and the character interactions. Kubert delivers a far less nuanced cover. Other artists in this issue include Russ Heath and Sam Glanzman. This is number 1 of 1 Our Army at War issues with Wood art and/or covers.
