·Combat Kelly starring

Notes: A "most valuable top secret film ... stolen from Americans" that Combat and Cookie capture from the Communists turns out to be a "Buck Duck cartoon comedy!" The image that appears in the last panel is the cover of Buck Duck 3 (Oct 1953), with the word balloon omitted but the A.C.M.P. comics code seal retained, and the title logo rearranged.
Korean War story.

·Combat Kelly starring

Notes: Combat and Cookie capture Hitler behind enemy-lines, force him to order the destruction of secret Nazi weapons, shave off his mustache, then dress him in American uniform and turn him over to his men (who, of course, don't recognize him and lock him up for being a raving maniac)

WWII-European front in 1944- story.

Combat and Cookie capture German Fuehrer Adolf Hitler (1889-1945); cf. F-504 Combat Kelly: "The Last Attack" in issue 29, where Italian Prime Minister Benito Mussolini is captured.
