Weird War Tales - Ernie Chan - 1973

Here comes a typically fine tale from one of my favorite DC titles from the 1970s, Weird War Tales. It features the stately, authoritative artwork of Ernie Chan (often credited a Ernie Chua); who did such wonderful work at Marvel on Conan the Barbarian.

This is from issue No. 17, September 1973. the cover is done by George Evans (whenever you see World War I planes on a DC cover, look for George Evans).


  1. Very Kurtzman like at first, but then with a very EC-ish ending (which Kurtzman was never the biggest fan of.) That's a real interesting mix! Some great art, with some fun repeated action panels.

  2. I agree, Brian, it did have an EC revenge twist to it. I have always like Chan's work.
