FOXHOLE "Replacement"

Back to World War II and Europe...
 From FoxHole #2, 1954.  Writer unknown.  Pencils and inks by Bill Draut.
Simple, effective tale with a nicely-done wordless sequence where a comparison of comics to movie storyboards is demonstrated most effectively.
Though Bill Draut is listed as the sole artist on this story at the Grand Comics Database, I believe Jack Kirby did roughs or layouts.
Most of the panel designs and figure placements are, for want of a better term, "Kirbyesque".
Curiously, though Draut was in the Marines, the story doesn't list a credit with his service, as most of the other stories in FoxHole did.

Until next time...
