Almost Gone! Collects #1-5, 1955. Highly Recommended. Art by Jack Davis, Bernie Krigstein, George Evans and Wally Wood. This new trend title combined the best of Kurtzman's Two Fisted Tales and Frontline Combat, with the same wonderful stories and the same superlative artists. This was EC's last-ditch effort to publish comics acceptable under the new comics code. And, of course, these are all aerial combat stories, leading off each issue with a cover by George Evans, who inside gives us WWI bi-plane stories with spot-on accurate details. Also here, with work in virtually every issue, are Wally Wood, Jack Davis, and Bernie Krigstein. Great, great work!

Introduction by Grant Geissman. Foreword by Howard Chaykin. The first issue was not code-approved.

Stories by Irv Werstein, Carl Wessler and Jack Oleck. New coloring from Dark Horse is not only very attractive, but offers a wonderful clarity so that the original pen and ink artwork is on full display, unlike the sometimes muddy printing of the original comics and even some of the earlier reprint series.
