The Death Patrol -- distinctive early Cole

Death Patrol debuted in the first issue of Quality's Military Comics alongside Blackhawk. It was created by Jack Cole under the supervision of Will Eisner. Though Cole was just finding his voice a lot of distinctive traits are already obvious, both artistic (check out the layouts) and thematic (the possibility of reform, the juxtaposition of slapstick and violence).
