Although this is Stan Asch, it reminds me very much of Paul Noris's later BRICK BRADFORD--even the ship! Carl H. Claudy, although now largely forgotten, was a prolific author in his day, with books on aviation, freemasons, photography, and quite a bit of juvenile science fiction!

One doesn't often call a war comic "fun" but this one is. Batman/Green Lantern co-creator Bill Finger, who would have been 102 years old today, is the credited writer. The Andru/Esposito team provides the unusual splash panel (as well as the rest of the art)

This story is pretty wordy but Lou Cameron's lively art and layouts more than make up for that. Cameron is one of those guys whose work I had never seen before I started this blog but who is now a favorite from the fifties.

Perhaps inspired by the great success of the 1941 film, HERE COMES MR. JORDAN in which a man is killed before his time and, with some angelic help, tries on the bodies of others as they pass. The series ran for quite a while. The movie was remade in the seventies as HEAVEN CAN WAIT.
