IDW's IT'S ALIVE! imprint is proud to announce the upcoming Kickstarter to bring select issues of the classic COMBAT comic book series by Sam Glanzman back to print! Three issues are being Kickstarted by Eisner-nominated IT'S ALIVE! publisher Drew Ford. Two of the three issues have already been successfully Kickstarted, but all three will be available in the new campaign featuring incredible variant cover art. The DUNKIRK issue has a variant cover by comic book superstar Walter Simonson (Ragnarök), the BATTLE OF MIDWAY issue has a variant cover by comic book living legend Russ Heath (Haunted Tank), and the new D-DAY issue has a variant cover by fan-favorite artist Russ Braun (The Boys)!

Each issue also has a standard cover created using artwork by the late Sam Glanzman, and all six comics are up for grabs in the new Kickstarter.  Also, there will be a limited number of signed copies of the variant covers by Simonson, Heath, and Braun!  COMBAT is a legendary comic book, that told true stories of WWII month after month, for several years.  There was, in fact, 26 issues in all, and Sam Glanzman illustrated all of them!  IT'S ALIVE! is thrilled to reprint these incredible comics, giving a whole new generation of readers a chance to discover and enjoy classic WWII war comics.
 
"COMBAT, as a series, is an important early example of war comics,” says Ford. “These first few issues tell three of the most compelling and unforgettable true stories of WWII. Beyond that, I am very honored to continue bringing back the magnificent work of Sam Glanzman. And I am so grateful that Walter Simonson, Russ Heath, and Russ Braun all contributed such incredible variant covers. We hope you will give it a look, and consider making a pledge."

The opinions I share are my own* Synopsis: The Winchester brothers’ harrowing journey into the heart of darkness continues as Supernatural enters Season Fourteen.
