BILL BATTLE "I'm the Best There Is!"

Before Sgt Fury!
Before Sgt Rock!
There was...
...the One Man Army, as he'll happily tell you, in his premiere appearance in his own title!
While the writer is unknown, the art is by Dick Dillin, who was also doing Blackhawk for Quality Comics at the time.
Sgt Bill Battle appeared, full blown, in his own title beginning in October, 1952.
In a unique touch, all four issues of his series featured photo covers of a model portraying Bill Battle in action, the only war comic to do so.
After the book was cancelled, he made several appearances in other comics, including the final issue of Master Comics, which featured Captain Marvel, Jr and cowboy star Tom Mix!
Until next time...
