G.I. Combat #132

G.I. Combat #132 (On Sale: August 13, 1968) has a pretty boring Haunted Tank cover by Joe Kubert. I blame this sort of thing on the editor, not the artist... oh, never mind.

The Haunted Tank stars in "The Executioner" by Robert Kanigher, Mike Sekowsky and Joe Giella. I don't recall Sekowsky ever doing a Haunted Tank tale. This one was reprinted in Showcase Presents: Haunted Tank Vol. 2 TPB.

The back-up story is "The Walls of Death" drawn by Jack Abel.

Edited by Joe Kubert.

Wasn't Infantino designing all covers at this point?

I don't think that was the case on the books edited by artists. Giordano, Orlando and Kubert had pretty much free reign to do what they wanted cover-wise. Cardy has spoken at length on this, that his Aquaman and Teen Titans work under Giordano was totally free from "layouts" by others.
