9375 News Item!

Notes: The first panel, the "photo" in the newspaper, is not a swipe of Russ Heath art, it IS Russ Heath art, a photostatted panel from "Truck Convoy" in BATTLE 6. That issue is dated the same month as this issue, January 1952. That story is signed by Hank Chapman, and "News Item" has many indicators--theme, structure, and style--that it is also written by Chapman. Chapman, who evidently was in the office enough to see and sign his completed stories as they came in, must have selected this panel for the "photo" and statted it for the "News Item" artist. (This is far more likely than the artist seeing the story in the shop and daring to ask for a stat to use in his story, or even thinking of it.) Note the jeeps in the background, which do not really fit the death scene (shown later in the story) that the photo is supposed to depict. - John Benson
