Weird War Tales #72 - non-attributed Walt Simonson art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Weird War Tales v1 #72, 1979 - As America joins the Allies in World War I, a German merchant ship finds itself in the US occupied territory of Puerto Rico. Although a mere two pages, Walt Simonson does an admirable job with this true historical tale. His layouts are succinct and his drawings fit nicely with the time period and locale. Joe Kubert executes a dramatically-charged cover. Other artists in this issue include E. R. Cruz, Juan Ortiz and Alfredo Alcala. This is number 2 of 2 Weird War Tales issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson, Kubert or Weird War Tales issues.
