Decent Comics: "A Small Place In Hell!" by Kirby and Berry

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! What would'a been the King's 99th birthday is coming up this Sunday, so we're celebrating early with another Jack Kirby Losers masterpiece, this time from Our Fighting Forces #152 (September 1975). "A Small Place In Hell!" (inked by D. Bruce Berry) is a rip-snortin', action-packed, bullet-riddled, tension-filled journey into all-out war, via Kirby's experiences, memories, and imagination. This is some potent, criminally underrated Kirby right here, baby!
