The Boy Commandos by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby Vol. 1
- Binding: Hardcover
One of the most popular of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby's kid gang comics from the early 1940s, The Boy Commandos were an international team of boy soldiers dedicated to fighting the Ratzis. The team included members from England, France, the Netherlands and the United States, under the leadership of Captain Rip Carter. The series featured typically imaginative tales, including appearances by Nostradamus, who predicts both Hitler and The Boy Commandos; a look back at World War Two from the year 3045; a New York gangster on the run in Europe, a New York cabbie arrives in Europe, determined to take on the Germans single-handed; the team is captured by the German Army in Africa; a ghost aids the boys in defending a French village; and a kitten accidentally lends a paw in a raid on a German-held town.
