DC war comics from the 70s take me back to a place that's a bit unique in my comic collecting history. I was always a Marvel guy and a superhero guy, but some of my earliest comics were DC war comics. They were so different from what I would collect. DC art was different from Marvel house style, they were war stories, and I don't remember specific characters from them. But I have such nostalgia for them. I haven't revisited them often but when I do, those old childhood feelings come back.

BTW, great deal on those books. Just getting a good story and artwork for 2 bucks is well worth it!

I agree on the DC war stories. I have quite a few of Sgt. Rock and the Haunted Tank. Some of those stories just struck me in a different way. I started reading comics in the late 1960s, and sometimes the convenient store only had new issues of the war comics. Of course, the Vietnam War was in full swing at that time, so I think reading about WW1 or WW2 gave me some escape and yet a "historic" feel too. I'm not sure how to explain it, but the art and stories in some of these books just reminds me of being 10. To this day some of these stories move me more than others, and I genuinely enjoy going back to read them. I was a Marvel fan too (have a BUNCH of Sgt. Fury books), but DC just handled war books better (it seems to me). Ah, nostalgia!
