The Thing and Enemy Ace



Enemy Ace was another title that I did not pay very much attention to until I started looking around for Joe Kubert illustrated stories that I had not read yet. I picked up the Showcase collections and was drawn right into the stories. Very cool wartime drama that is markedly different from the stories I had been reading that featured Sgt. Rock, The Haunted Tank or The Unknown Soldier. With Ben Grimm's piloting experience, I think this would be an interesting combo.

"Pilot Season"...genius!

Not a whole lot of attention paid to Ben's piloting skills, really...

I don't remember Rock, Haunted Tank or Unknown Soldier making appearances in All-Star Squadron. That would have given the book a cool spin...I know it was pretty much a JSA book...with some attention given to other Golden-Age heroes...

I'm a really big Von Hammer fan, so seeing this was a big thrill.

That title/punchline, though... Oy!

Not sure about Felix the Cat, but you can count on most of the others you listed making an appearance!
