United States Marines 7, 1952

United States Marines 7, 1952

This comic was sold on eBay in October 2008 for only $14.95. I was very disappointed to receive such a low winning bid.

Cool Korean War-era flamethrower cover! This comic series is a little odd. It carries the obvious title "United States Marines" but is really part of a series called A1 Comics that featured all manner of comic stories; one issue could be super-hero, the next western, or romance, or detective, or whatever. So this comic is not only "United States Marines number 7" but is also known as "A1 Comics number 68"!

Pretty confusing, eh? I'm sure it was very confusing for early collectors who might have been trying to find both comics without realizing there were really one and the same.
