BLAZING COMBAT

Publisher James Warren recalled his troubles with BLAZING COMBAT in a 1999 interview: "My distributor was saying, 'Uh oh! Wait until our wholesalers — many of them belonging to the American Legion — see this!' They found out very fast that Blazing Combat was anti-war. With issue #3, the American Legion began a quiet campaign to kill the title, due to its perceived "anti-war" stance.

Mr. Catron has allowed me to announce that a complete Blazing Combat collection will be coming out from Fantagraphics later this year! Watch for it.

Today, DIAL B for BLOG continues its examination of James Warren’s innovative and controversial black and white war magazine, with a look at BLAZING COMBAT #3, from April 1966, cover painted by Frank Frazetta.
