Blazing CombatGraphic Novel - 2009
A comic-book classic with timely resonance. Blazing Combat was an Americanwar-comics magazine published by Warren Publishing from 1965 to 1966. Writtenand edited by Archie Goodwin, with artwork by such industry notables as GeneColan, Frank Frazetta, John Severin, Alex Toth, Al Williamson, Russ Heath, ReedCrandall, and Wally Wood, it featured war stories in both contemporary andperiod settings, unified by a humanistic theme of the personal costs of war,rather than by traditional men's adventure motifs. What proved to be the mostcontroversial were stories set during the then-contemporary Vietnam War; onesuch story caused key distributors to stop sellling the title. Fantagraphics isproud to present a deluxe, hardcover edition, magnificently printed and bound,of these stories, superbly reproduced for the original printer's film negatives.
