And just as a side-note: Was there anything DC wouldn't slap the word NEW! on in 1972?

And doesn't "Don't shoot!" We're Americans!" look quaint?

Stuart Moore said...

Yeah, I picked that one on purpose.

I can't stop looking at this. What does THE NEW HAUNTED TANK mean, anyway? It's the same fuckin' tank, right? It's the same fuckin' ghost, right? It's the same fuckin' WAR, right?

Right?

I'm just guessing, but DC probably used the "New" tag because Russ Heath left the strip. Sam Glanzman started penciling and inking with this issue. I'd bet Infantino wanted to draw attention to the "new look" of the new artist.

That's just a guess, though.
