Jack Davis was one of the most versatile artists to work for EC Comics. Davis could do it all — crime, horror, humor, even science fiction. So when Davis teamed up with legendary writer/editor Harvey Kurtzman for stories about men in the stress of combat together, the result was some of the best war stories ever put to paper.

Together, Davis and Kurtzman delivered outstanding combat tales from the Civil War to World War I to World War II to Korea. From the Army to the Navy to the Air Force to the Marines. From aviators to soldiers, sailors, and submariners. Davis imbued his characters with a rich, endearing humanity, and Kurtzman pulled no punches in depicting the utter folly, madness, and horror of war.

Death Stand And Other Stories collects all the combat tales Davis and Kurtzman did together for EC’s Two-Fisted Tales and Frontline Combat, and even includes Davis’s adaptation of an excerpt from James Fenimore Cooper’s Last of the Mohicans. More than 30 stories illustrated by Jack Davis, most scripted by EC legend Harvey Kurtzman, plus extensive story notes and bonus features.
