Go Marines!

Sunday Al Wiliamson Surprise. 

Timely-Atlas' war titles had verious different features about army history. The History of the U.S. Marine Corps was one of them, withg different episodes drawn by different artists. Al williamson jumops in with an early one. He signed it and almost certainly did the pencils. Who finished it is a mystery.

It never ceases to amaze me how lousy Atlas coloring was. European b&w reprints, like Alan Class' comics line in England, did so much better a job of showing how good Williamson's Atlas work was.

Oh, yes. I took two Gene Colan stories form some of the latest books I looked through for Williamson specifically to ask if someone could recolor them. This one is the same, but the art or the story aren't worth the recoloring in my opinion. It is a sore point of course, because the culprit probabloy was either Stan Goldberg or the beloved Marie Severin.
