The origins of war comics can be traced back to the age of superheroes. During World War II the masked men turned their attention to defeating Hitler and the Nazi hordes. At the end of the war public interest in superheroes waned, but this led to comics that devoted themselves solely to war stories. More titles appeared, especially during the Korean War. The modern war comic was born.
One of the major publishers of war comics was Charlton with such titles as Battlefield Action and their Fightin' series. Also worthy of mention is Quality's Blackhawk. Apart from his own title, he appears in Miltary comics, Modern comics and many other of their books. Another star is G.I. Joe brought to us by Ziff Davis, always with a smile on his face and a flower in his helmet.
