NEW TWO-FISTED TALES (1993) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Two-issue series, color, 48 pages, $4.95 cover, prestige format

Description This Issue:
Just prior to his death, Harvey Kurtzman managed to work out a deal to revive TWO-FISTED TALES. Originally published by EC Comics during the 1950's, TWO-FISTED TALES is considered by most fans to be the best (anti-) war comic ever produced. Kurtzman pulled no punches in describing the horrors and futility of armed conflict, and always had the best creators in the entire world of comics lined up to produce stories for him to edit. This first issue immediately bridged the gap with the issues published in 1955 by conveying the same visceral unpleasantness about war. This is the comic the Pentagon does NOT want young people to read. If they did, they'd never sign up. Cover to the first issue is by Harvey Kurtzman & Will Eisner. Interior contents: ""Dustoff"" story and art by Don Lomax & Rose Lomax, ""The Crater"" story and art by Wayne Vansant, ""Zippo Raid"" story and art by Don Lomax & Rose Lomax, ""Raid on Entebbe"" story by Jessica Steinberg, art by Spain Rodriguez. The final story, ""Corpse on the Imjin"" is a reprint of a story written and drawn by Harvey Kurtzman for EC Comics in 1951.
