EC Comics (1951-54)
Frontline Combat is an anthology war comic book written and edited by Harvey Kurtzman and published bi-monthly by EC Comics. The first issue was cover dated July/August, 1951. It ran for 15 issues over three years, and ended with the January, 1954 issue. Publication was discontinued following a decline in sales attributed to the end of the Korean War. The title was a companion to Kurtzman’s comic book Two-Fisted Tales. Both titles depicted the horrors of war realistically and in great detail, exposing what Kurtzman saw as the truth about war without glamorizing or idealizing it.
Gritty War comic Frontline Combat added. We hope to add DC’s GI Combat, but there’s a lot of them, but they include the Haunted Tank and Sgt Rock, so we’re going to give it a shot.
