Rare Vintage Blitzkrieg (1976) Issue 2 Comic book by DC Comics. This was my favourite comic as a kid.
"Walls of Blood" and the Huns in "Circle of Death." Scripts by Bob Kanigher, art by Ric Estrada. Superman is featured in a one-page public service announcement, "Justice For All Includes Children" with art by Neal Adams. Captain Marvel (SHAZAM) stars in a one-page Hostess ad, "The Cup Cake Caper." (Pencils by Curt Swan?) Joe Kubert cover. Cover price $0.25.
The focus of the series was an anthology of World War II stories featuring soldiers of Nazi Germany as well as the civilians resisting or victimized by the regime. This series differed from most other US-published war comics which focused exclusively on Allied forces; as a result, the cover of each issue included the tagline "We dare to be different!"
Unlike the more famous stories of the German World War I flying ace, Hans von Hammer, a.k.a. The Enemy Ace, the stories in this series kept an unambiguously negative tone against the World World II German military. The series was also notable for its strong (for the time) depictions of violence and gruesome images. The series was canceled after five issues
