Twenty Goofy Moments From DC and Marvel’s Silver Age War Comics

In honor of Memorial Day, I figured we’d do a special edition of Goofiest Moments Month. Instead of ranking the top goofiest moments in a series of issues (like I have done throughout the month), I’m just going to spotlight twenty goofy moments, chosen almost at random, from DC and Marvel’s Silver Age war comics (for the sake of this exercise I used 1972 as my cut-off point for the “Silver Age”). I intentionally avoided the supernatural war comics like Haunted Tank and War That Time Forgot, as those are too easy to find goofy moments (pretty much every issue is goofy).

The comics in question were mostly written by Robert Kanigher and Stan Lee (DC and Marvel, respectively), with Bob Haney, Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich also being represented. The artwork is by Joe Kubert, Ross Andru/Mike Esposito, Jack Kirby, Dick Ayers, John Severin, Russ Heath and, I believe Jerry Grandenetti (but don’t hold me to Grandenetti). I’ll provide all the issue numbers, so if you’re curious you can look up the creative teams later on your own.

Enjoy!

Five Goofiest Moments in the Captain America Feature in Tales of Suspense #91-95

Every day this month will have the five goofiest moment from a five-issue stretch of a particular comic book run. Once a week it will be the ten goofiest moments of a ten-issue stretch. Here is a list of the moments featured so far.

I was going to begin with the first five issues of Captain America’s late-60s solo magazine (#100-104), but then I realized that A. Those issues continued directly from Cap’s Tales of Suspense issues, so it wouldn’t be like I was giving the “real” first five issues of the story and, perhaps more importantly B. skipping over the end of his Tales of Suspense run involved skipping over one of the goofiest moments in the entire Silver Age of Marvel Comics. So here we go, Tales of Suspense #91-95, scripted by Stan Lee, penciled by Gil Kane (#91) and Jack Kirby (#92-95) and inked by Joe Sinnott.
