Battle Brady-Syd Shores-1953

Here's one of those all-out, Gung-Ho, super soldier stories from the Korean War era, this one featuring a distant relative of the Brady Bunch. GCD credits Hank Chapman with the unusually rich dialogue that includes Brady's sidekick sergeant's favorite word, "CA-RIPES!" Timely veteran Syd Shores offers a mixed bag on the art but some interesting storytelling as our Army Lone Ranger (and his Tonto) go up against a clear Dragon Lady clone. They don't make 'em like this any more...and there's a good reason...or to be accurate, MANY good reasons.
