    Description

    Weird War Tales #1 (DC, 1971) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. The master of DC war covers, Joe Kubert, delivers another one featuring a skeleton with a Nazi coat attempting to bayonet some G.I.s. This long-running bronze age title came out at a time when America was torn asunder by the Vietnam war. Because of 'Nam, war comics gained in popularity and, as the quagmire of the U.S. forces in Asia dragged on, this title was the perfect relief-valve for the nation's frustration. Most of the stories in this title focused on World War II battles, where the Allied forces had the upper hand and won, with very odd and macabre twists. This title is once again gaining popularity with fans. While this copy has a printer's crease on the back cover, there is only one copy that has graded NM+ 9.6 as of this writing (and none that are graded higher). Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $300.
