Showcase #56

DC decided to capitalize on the success of Hasbro's G.I. Joe toy line by putting this issue out in November, 1964. It reprints three classic war tales from the pages of G.I. Combat, "Hot Corner" by Kanigher and Kubert from #59, "Frogmen S.O.S." by Haney and Heath from #60, and "Battle Arithmetic" by Haney and Andru, from #52. Top it all off with another fantastic Kubert cover and you have yourself a typically great DC war comic of the sixties!

And then many years later G.I. Joe would do a line of DC War character figures like Rock and the Unknown Soldier.
