Highly Recommended. By Rafael Medoff and Craig Yoe. Art by Neal Adams, John Severin, Gil Kane, George Evans, Joe Kubert et al. Classic comic book stories about the Holocaust and interviews with their artists and writers, with a cover drawn especially for this book by Neal Adams. An amazing but forgotten chapter in comics history. Long before the Holocaust was taught in schools or presented in films such as Schindler's List, the youth of America was learning about the Nazi genocide from stories like EC's "Master Race." But it didn't stop there. Complete tales from Batman, The X-Men, Captain America, The Losers, and Sgt. Rock are just the start of the stories collected here.

Classic comic book stories about the Holocaust and interviews with their artists and writers, with a cover drawn especially for this book by Neal Adams. An amazing but forgotten chapter in comics history. Long before the Holocaust was taught in schools or presented in films such as Schindler's List, the youth of America was learning about the Nazi genocide from stories like EC's "Master Race." But it didn't stop there. Complete tales from Batman, The X-Men, Captain America, The Losers, and Sgt. Rock are just the start of the stories collected here.

New Foreword AND Afterword by Stan Lee. Plus a second Foreword by Neal Adams, and introductions by both co-editors, Richard Medoff and Craig Yoe. Each complete story has a full introduction by the editors, often as much as three pages long.

Comics legend Neal Adams, Holocaust scholar Medoff, and comics historian Yoe bring together a remarkable collection of comic book stories that introduced an entire generation to an engaging and important subject. We Spoke Out is an extraordinary journey into a compelling topic. Joe Kubert has several powerful pieces, sci fi writer Harry Harrison does a story in Beware! Terror Tales from 1953, Wally Wood's "Desert Fox" from Two-Fisted Tales from 1953, a rare story by pulp artist Vincent Napoli from Stamps Comics, 1952

Then we move into the '60s, '70s and '80s with Gene Colan's"Experiment in Fear" from Eerie #9, "The Mad Master of the Murder Maze" by Gil Kane and Dan Adkins, from Captain Marvel #19, 1969, a killer Batman #237 story from 1971 and "Thou Shalt Not Kill" from Weird War Tales #8, 1972, by Neal Adams.

Rock Spectacular #13, 1978. "Holocaust" by Joe Kubert from Sgt. Rock #351, 1981.
