Weird War Tales was launched by DC in 1971 under Editor Joe Kubert to exploit the relaxation of the Comics Code. Vampires, ghouls, werewolves and other supernatural subjects were now allowed and DC were taking advantage with horror/mystery titles such as House of Mystery, House of Secrets and Witching Hour so Weird War Tales was an attempt to present war stories with a horror/mystery twist. The first issue was cover dated September/October 1971.
