All-Out War

 ALOW   (DC, 1979-1980)

™ and © DC Comics, Inc.

This six-issue war comics focused on war heroes, albeit not always conventional ones. Among its atypical characters were the all-black fighting men of the Black Eagle Force in World War II; a brave dog with a talent for sniffing out the enemy during the Viet Nam war; and the unstoppable “Viking Commando,” who takes a detour from his trip to Valhalla in order to thwart the Nazis (whom he recognizes as his eternal enemies, the Huns). This last hero, as well as a multi-national resistance and sabotage team, Force 3, continued as characters through the entire run of the short-lived series.
