 Profiles 43 - War Comics (Mar 2001)
More frequently, however, the redemption story in a war comic would deal with some kind of redemption from personal disgrace, such as tales where a deserter sentenced to death might sacrifice his life to save other troops, and thereby both prove his courage and elude the firing squad.
In this aspect, such comics probably touched on a key attraction that could bring people into life-threatening theaters of war in spite of world views and perceived self-interest that would loudly argue against such a course of action; for some, the battlefields provided on last place to validate a (supposedly) wasted life.
After a generation of war comics, writers and artists at DC - and, perhaps, to a lesser extent, other companies - sought ways to liven up material which had begun to show the strain of overuse and concept exhaustion.
