*Vintage Magazine-Sized Comics: While more famous for its horror titles, Creepy, Eerie and Vampirella, Warren did in 1965 attempt to diversify with Blazing Combat, a war-themed anthology mag written (almost entirely) by Archie Goodwin, with the same stellar roster of artists – Toth, Wood, Colan, Severin, and cover artist Frank Frazetta – used in the horror line. But while the work was of superb quality, the politics, representing the human cost of war, were at odds with zeitgeist of the times, and in particular the anti-Vietnam story, “Landscape”, in issue #2, ensured that after #3, PXs across America stopped carrying the series, with a record zero copies of #4 ordered by military bases. With that chunk taken out of circulation – and with threats that PXs would stop stocking the rest of Warren’s line in protest against Blazing Combat – Warren cancelled the series with issue #4 in 1966. Generally acknowledged as the finest war comic since the EC days, we have the entire 4-issue run back in stock. Pictured is #1 (FN- p £55); others in our online catalogue.
