    Description

    Frontline Combat #1 Gaines File pedigree 5/9 (EC, 1951). The spectacular first issue of this inspired title, Frontline Combat was Harvey Kurtzman's baby. His innovative covers and creative stewardship resulted in a masterpiece that is revered to this day, and acclaimed by many as possibly the best war title in comics. Also one of the rarest Gaines File ECs, with only nine GF copies extant. A fantastic Korean war cover by Kurtzman with interior work by Wally Wood, John Severin and Kurtzman make this book a real winner. CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. Overstreet 2001 NM 9.4 value = $600.
