Covers and themes
The cover of issue #28 (January 1956) shows a bomber engulfed in flames. "The Secret Bridge", an original six page story inside, concerns a French volunteer. He helps settle a dispute two soldiers are having during the Korean War. The Bob Powell studio embellished each panel (comics) with detailed backgrounds and expressionistic lighting schemes. Most of the cover is occupied by one of the plane's parachuting crew members. The man is firing what appears to be a combination of a carbine and a submachine gun. The weapon is being aimed at unseen enemy fighters. Warfront #29 (September 1957) shows a marine firing his tommy gun into a destroyed bunker. This kills the remaining survivors.
