SUNDAY FUNNIES!! EC's 2-Fisted Taled BOMB RUN




BOMB RUN was lifted from the pages of EC Publishers' TWO-FISTED TALE.  It was written by editor Harvey Kurtzman and illustrated by John Severin and Will Elder.
Here is something you might not notice unless you are an
EC obsessive fan:   It is known that  the writers and artists like to put in inside private  jokes that only they  would understand.  On the first page of this story the bottom  panel introducing the characters in this story names the last person as "Gunner Jerry De Fuccio, "pint-size PFC" from Yonkers, Ny."
Jerry De Fuccio, the real person was Harvey Kurtzman's assistant and Harvey sent him on countless research missions, sometimes to a military base and sometimes to the NYC Public Library.  Pint-size?  I think that is a private joke that only Harvey and Jerry know.

Be sure and click on each page to make it readable.
