FOXHOLE "Lucky Stiff"

It's Veteran's Day, so let's salute the troops...
...with a Korean War tale written and laid-out by a veteran of WWII, Jack Kirby...
The penciler-inker for this tale from FoxHole #5 (1955) was Joaquin Albistur, a well-established illustrator from Argentina who tried to break into the US market in the early 1950s.
Besides  almost two dozen comics stories for the Simon & Kirby studio, he did some illustrations for LOOK Magazine.
Unfortunately, the logistics of dealing with sending art long-distance from Argentina to America precluded his doing more work for US publishers.
Until next time...
