Flagman-Joe Kubert-1942

It's easy to see a little Lou Fine influence here and a lot of Will Eisner influence. It's not as easy to see that this is some very early work by someone who would go on to be equally if not more influential himself--Joe Kubert. Flagman and Rusty were definite also-rans in the grand tradition of patriotic heroes but in Kubert was--and is still--here to stay!
