Harvey Kurtzman's remarks recorded by John Benson. Commentary written by Bill Mason. Numbers 1-15. The books are designed with the collector in mind, with special attention paid to the quality of reproduction and faithfulness to the original EC comics' format. Frontline Combat was a companion to Kurtzman's comic book Two-Fisted Tales. Both titles portrayed the horrors of war with realism and great detail, illustrating what Kurtzman saw as the truth about war without glamorizing or idealizing it.
