    Description

    Jack Sparling - Original Art for G.I. Combat #170, complete 6-page story, "Every Battle...Y' Die A Little" (DC, 1974). Every war has its human side, a fact that is poignantly dramatized in this 6-page gem illustrated by comics veteran Jack Sparling. The story of a battle-hardened veteran and a raw recruit, this is a personal story about the way in which war touches the lives of those involved. The first panel is a paste-over, with an entirely different panel underneath, both of which are all original art. Perhaps the piece as originally drawn was a bit too intense for the powers-that-be-at DC? Each page measures approximately 10.5" x 15.5" overall, and all are in excellent condition. Signed by the artist in the first panel.
