Battle Report 6, 1953

Here is another notable 1950s war comic that uses the racial slur "gook" on the cover. See Attack! #8 and War Report #5 for the other two I have cataloged.

Like the others, this is not a classic cover in the sense of great artistry or popularity among collectors, but it conforms to my own definition of classic... which focuses more on scarcity and variety than sheer popularity -- which is why you won't find popular mainstream issues like Action Comics #1, Detective #27, Marvel Comics #1, or Superman #1 at this web site.

Inside this issue are the following stories: "Tiger Patrol," "Bullet Bait," "Mighty Misfit," and "Feathered Fate" (A curious tale of soldiers using bows and arrows for combat in Korea.).
