G.I. Combat #61 - Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
G.I. Combat v1 #61, 1958 - Frenetic and full of action, Joe Kubert's cover is comprised of few elements. The skier makes a strong and obvious focal point. An oncoming plane and distant mountaintop provide supporting elements to the layout. And yet, even a partial reveal of the soldier's face would have humanized the scene. Kubert's hand is most evident in the strokes of the foreground snow. Other artists in this issue include Russ Heath, Jack Abel and Mort Drucker. See today's posts or more Kubert or G.I. Combat issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist.
