History making Hitler checklist
6 6

308 posts in this topic

Back in January 1996 I wrote a "history making checklist" on Hitler covers for the ComicBook Marketplace (issue #31) . I made a few errors on that list and have found several more since then. I am covering the years from 1954 and earlier. Am I missing any covers that you know of that are not on my list below? So far I have found 82 covers. Let me know if I missed any or if you have anything else to add, thanks!

Famous Funnies #102

Blue Beetle #32

Bomber Comics #4 (Sensation #13 swipe!)

 

I'm not sure if these qualify:

Daredevil #18 (Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito? as dummies on cover)

Miss Fury #4 (Noted on CGC label as "Hitler in picture on cover")

 

Edit: Checked Heritage and also found these:

 

Target Comics V3#8 (noted on label confused-smiley-013.gif )

U.S.A #9 (small but noted on label)

4 Most V2#4 (Hitler, Tojo, and Mussolini appear on the cover as pumpkins grin.gif )

The Human Torch #5 (#4) Check out the back cover!!! Alternative cover for Young Allies #1

Hey West,

I remember writing a letter to the editor in response to your list with four additional Hitler covers, one of which was Real Life #3. Gary was kind enough to print pictures of the covers I mentioned along with my letter.

I can not for the life of me find that issue, although I know I have it somewhere. Do you happen to remember my letter, and what issue it was in?

I'm wracking my brain here. frustrated.gif

Thanks Arty, I knew about most of those but I totally spaced. I think I have forgotten more than I have remembered. 27_laughing.gif. See what working at CGC does to a man! insane.gifinsane.gif thanks for the list!

stupid question; you're looking for contemporary titles, i take it... 1482_2_0292.jpg

 

FF 292.

 

i will say there aren't any in the Hit Comics run, so you can take that off your list, if you're searching cover-by-cover

Master Comics #29 has a Hitler and Hirohito cover.

Although he isn't shown a box on the cover of Master Comics #47 plugs the appearance of Corpl. Hitler Jr. in the Capt. Marvel Jr. story.

I'll keep digging in the Fawcett's, there has to be more!

A giant honking table, with links to all the covers I could get off of comics.org. links are for 16x pics. the list isn't up to date, but rather, just uses West's first post. subsequent revisions if and when i have time, unless someone wants to take a look at the code and add lines where necessary;

if links don't work, chances are i will have them fixed tomorrow sometime...oh, btw, these are all the 4x cover images. sometimes, you can just change the "200" in the URL to a "400" to see the larger image, although often they don't have the larger one, so there you go
