Comic Books I Wish I Had Bought
"Weird War Tales" falls into this category from my childhood and teenage years. When my parents could afford to buy me a comic book (which wasn't often) I normally went for Marvel and specifically "The Avengers" and not, to my regret something like "Weird War Tales". I now love these comics and the old EC brand of Weird Science, Tales from the Crypt, Haunt of Fear and even the suspense and "horror" comics that were around but in lesser forms as I was growing up.
I think I went mostly for the Marvel and some DC because that is what was available in my area as we live in a rural area and then a small town, where I still live, so comic book stores and even book stores were unheard of until the late 1980s and even into the 1990s. When I was working and going to school I found my first real comic book store and made it my second home and still I fell for the Marvel superheroes but I also managed to get talked into the horror/weird tales comics and ever since I have so enjoyed them.
So enjoy this cover of "Weird War Tales" Vol 1 #94 from December 1980. Click the title and see the details from the DC Database.
