Warren Magazines: "Blazing Combat"..

"Blazing Combat" was an American war-comics magazine published by Warren Publishing from 1965 to 1966, written/edited by Archie Goodwin, with artwork by illustrators Gene Colan, Frank Frazetta, John Severin, Alex Toth and Wally Wood, featuring war stories in both contemporary and period settings, unified by a humanistic theme of the personal costs of war.

What proved to be the most controversial stories were set during the Vietnam War, particularly "Landscape" (issue #2), which caused key distributors to stop selling the title.

Fantagraphics is now offering a deluxe, hardcover edition of "Blazing Combat", printed and bound, with all the stories reproduced from the original printer's film negatives.
