BLAZING COMBAT was an American war-comics magazine published between 1965 and 1966, featuring stories in both contemporary and period settings - focussing firstly on the Second World War and the American Civil War and moving on to more controversial Vietnam-based stories. BLAZING COMBAT's comics were remarkable in that they were unified by a humanistic theme of the personal cost of war, rather than by traditional adventure motifs. While writer Archie Goodwin portrayed the conflicts evenhandedly, his Vietnam stories caused key distributors to stop selling the title.
