SUNDAY FUNNIES - TWO-FISTED TALES #9



TWO-FISTED Comicbooks was an EC Comics publication. Harvey Kurtzman was the editor. He illustrated a lot of the covers and some of the stories, which he wrote just about all of them with maybe a few argumentatively exceptions.

This issue, number 9, Kurtzman did the cover. The story within is WEAK LINK! It takes place in WWII with the GIs fighting the Germans. The artwork is by Will Elder and John Severin. Severin, Elder, and Kurtzman were more known for their pioneering work with the new MAD comicbook

The Weak Link was always an interesting phase. It means any organization, like a chain, is only as strong as the its weakest link. This Christmas season I heard a different version, but the same concept: A mother is only happy as her sadist child.
