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!

Special tip of the groovy headband to supahz for the superior scans!


  1. Great story! One of my favorites back in the good ol' days. I wasn't a regular reader of war comics, but I did read most of Kirby's stint with The Losers. Thanks for posting.

  2. I came across this little gem while goofing around in a comic store some years ago, and was completely knocked over by it. One of those rare finds that makes comic collecting fun and surprising.

  3. Good stuff Groove. I ALWAYS felt Jack's non super hero stuff was better at this stage of his career. Cheers
