Decent Comics: "Gung Ho!" by Kirby and Berry

Here we are, Groove-ophiles! The final Losers story by Jack Kirby from Our Fighting Forces #162 (September 1975). This one starts off with a misleading cover by Ernie Chua (Chan); misleading in that it has the wrong Loser featured in the scene, it should be Gunner, not Sarge, as you'll see for yourself when you read "Gung Ho!" But The King went out with style, allowing the least of the Losers, Gunner, his own time to shine and do his part to give us another action-packed fable on the atrocities of war.



















Jack's 100th birthday celebration is coming up at the end of the month, and unless you've been under a rock, you've notices that it's been celebrated on comicbook sites and blogs pretty much all year long. And that's how it should be!

  2. "Suddenly, time runs out! As it always does... unexpectedly!" Brilliant - another classic.

    Many thanks for posting the whole run, Groove. Looking forward to seeing what you've lined up for later this month.
