So yeah, DC had a whole bunch of war comics where they basically took random other stuff and mashed it up with WW2 action. There was a series, "Weird War Tales," that had supernatural or sci-fi elements:

Image

There was "G.I. Combat" that was usually straight-up war stories, but got weird with The Haunted Tank:

Image

(The Haunted Tank was an M3 Stuart light tank that was haunted by the ghost of Civil War general Jeb Stuart who mostly seemed to give strategy advice to make the actual tank commander look good):

Image

...and apparently gave the M3 Stuart the ability to use its tiny little gun to not only damage German Tiger tanks (which is laughable to begin with), but actually DESTROY THEM IN A SINGLE SHOT:

Image

(Hint: This never ever happened.)

There was of course The War That Time Forgot (which was tanks submarines and stuff and dinosaurs, and I forget the reason for it):

Image

...and G.I. Robot, who was, you know, a G.I. who was a robot:

Image

And there were supernatural stories about the Creature Commandos, who were a vampire and a werewolf and, uh, let's see:

Image

...Frankenstein's Monster, and MEDUSA(!) and some poor mundane human guy who was apparently in charge. Yeah. "The team's first mission was in France, where they destroyed Nazi manufactured android duplicates of the Allied leaders." Yuppers. Also more dinosaurs.

Man, DC war comics were AWESOME.

I'd actually forgotten about most of these until recently when my father decided he was tired of all the crepe my brother and I left in our closets when we moved out and told us to come sort through and take what we wanted to keep (so everything else could go to Goodwill), and I found all these things again. UTTER DELIGHT.

Dude, who doesn't?

Here you go: http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/J.A.K.E._I_(New_Earth)

I'm probably gonna pick up the War That Time Forgot collection on my next comic book store run.
