SUNDAY FUNNIES - CHECKERS1




The is EC's TWO-FISTED TALES comicbook no. 11 recycled. It was orginally published in the early 1950s. Just about every issue of EC two war comics had a story about the war in North Korea. Why? Because it was going on as the reader read it for the first time. The name of the story is CHECKERS which is not hard to figure out why. The story was written by editor Harvey Kurtzman and the two artists were John Severin and Will Elder. All three men were be better known for being the first pioneers of EC's MAD Comic book. The top picture was the cover, drawn by Kurtzman. The picture relates to the CHECKERS story (which has nothing to do with Nixon's dog).
