Marvel Comics Against Racism and Bigotry

I just spotted this really interesting post over my pal Brainster's secondary blog, Silver Age Comics. Growing up, I always had trouble deciding what to spend my meager allowance on each month: the latest Avengers comic or whatever military/war comic looked the most promising. There were usually a few to pick from — Sgt. Rock, Men of War, Our Army at War, Our Fighting Forces — but one of my all-time favorites was always Sgt. Nick Fury and the Howling Commandos of Easy Company. Although I don't remember ever reading this one, the story Pat reviews is the type that kept me coming back to Easy Co. and to Marvel Comics in general, time after time after time. Well, that and the outstanding characters, stories and artwork that defined Marvel's mags in the 60s and 70s.

'Nuff said!
