It’s Alive! launches a new Kickstarter to reprint another World War II story from ‘Combat.’
It’s Alive! has launched a Kickstarter to bring another of Sam Glanzman’s classic World War II tales back into print.
Battle for Britain tells the story of the Royal Air Force defense of the United Kingdom against large-scale attacks by Nazi Germany’s air force, the Luftwaffe — one of the first major campaigns fought by air forces. The original story was published in 1961 in an issue of Combat.
Along with a fully restored main story, this new edition will feature a four-page back-up story titled The Puny, Little Yank, along with black and white photos from WWII, a new essay about Glanzman, an essay about the Doolittle Raiders, vintage ads that were in the original issues, the original cover art by Glanzman, a new standard cover by Glanzman and a new variant cover by John McCrea.
Check out the two new covers below, and visit the Kickstarter page for more information.
