    John Severin Our Fighting Forces #124 Complete 8-page Story "Parable" Original Art (DC, 1970). At EC during the early 1950s, writer Jerry DeFuccio was an assistant editor and researcher on Harvey Kurtzman's war titles, Frontline Combat and Two-Fisted Tales. In the seventies, DeFuccio decided to revive the glory days of those classics and he commissioned John Severin and Reed Crandall to illustrate his new scripts. Originally intending to self-publish these stories, DeFuccio ended up selling them to DC as back-up yarns for their war books. This yarn, set in Afghanistan in the 1880s, could be seen as a companion piece to the Severin-illustrated EC stories "Belts n' Celts" and "Bullets," also set in the Middle East. Each page has an image area of 12" x 18". There are some pasted-on art corrections on pages 4 and 8, and masking tape around the borders (outside the image area) of each page; otherwise, the art averages Very Good condition.
