Sgt. Fury & his Howling Commandos all had 1928's. The cartoonist was a fan of the Blish.

Ron,
I think ol' Joe Kubert, the artist who created Sgt. Rock, might have stretched the details now and then, but I think, for the most part, the Sarge used an M1A1...man, I used to have about 400 of those issues..."Sgt. Rock", "Our Army At War", etc...gave 'em all away...I probably had enough rare issues to trade for a FA Thompson... blink.gif

looking through all my stuff today,located a dozen 1956 through 1959 issue's.also found a few howling commando's also.along witha few thompson 1930 poster's.and bataan,and wake island.

and my coveted six new in wrap fantastic monster's of filmland..the take -off from famous monster's.or what paul blaisdell started.i knew forry ackermann/akermonster personally..paul now deceased.

yep when i went off to war in 1968{ police action from the gov.}most of my stuff got tossed..however some thing's did get rat-holed away....along withover a 1,000 book's and magazine's..

now today some have been a collector item. i guess..anybody interested in the first issue of "club"

still miss: true action,argosy,and stag! they all had thompson's..good time's.....too much reading warped a kid's brain..............but boy could he fight..take care,ron

I loved the old comics, especially the war ones from the 50s and 60s. Seems like I remember that Jack Kirby's Thompsons were very strange. They almost looked like ray guns.
