Decent Comics: "Bushido!" by Kirby and Berry

Teeeeeen HUT! Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Jack Kirby and D. Bruce Berry gave us some great character moments and tons of action in "Bushido!" Join us for a look at Our Fighting Forces #154 (January 1975)...


  1. I considered The Losers one of Kirby's weaker efforts at DC. But rereading your posts I realize how wrong I've been. As I've rebuilt my previous collection from 1986 onward, I haven't concentrated on this title. I intend to rectify that in the near future.

  3. Ah, ze Loozairs!
    Brilliant - latest of the monthly posts. That's right, isn't it Mr Groove? For some reason you skipped October, but plan on continuing to post an episode of the Losers each month...?

    Love Kirby's last year at DC. It might not add up to a Great Work in the Fourth World mould, but The Losers alternating with OMAC - Jack recalling the past and looking to the future - made for a powerful combo.


    1. True, sean! I do plan on mostly-monthly doses of Kirby's Losers. I skipped October due to my special Halloween posts. Other "special days" could postpone it again (as is true for any other "monthly" mag I'm posting. Depends on the day...
