Moustache Monday!

A foreign fellow always knows how to carry a big moustache. Malik, the burly, brooding Balkan type from War Picture Library 277 The Patriot certainly carries his well.

He's no doubt been grooming that thing since he was 7 years old.

Oh the wonder that is facial hair.

Moustache Monday!

This is a fine example of the sneaky moustache in the bushes.

True to the  tradition of tashes this moustache has the time to console his mate Ginger about a bunch of big nasty Germans while still finding time to poke his big gun through the underbrush.

This fine Moustache appears in War Picture Library 192 The Unguarded Hour.

Moustache Monday!

A slightly unusual tash today - displaying both the variety and the subtle brilliance of facial hair. This tash adorns Charlie in Air Ace Picture Library 78 Aces High.

A nice piece of grooming that starts with a gap and then ever so slightly broadens by the finish. Kind of reminiscent of a 2006 Barossa Shiraz I once had the pleasure to meet.

Meanwhile if you look skyward...

I like to think it all started with AP Publishing all those years ago...

Surely there has to be a pocket war comic featuring Goliaths.

Moustache Monday!

Moustache Monday starts with two tashes.

Young Tommy Grafton gets the good oil from two chaps who know a thing or two about staying out of bother.

Cover of the Week War Picture Library 71 Zero Hour

No doubt what's going on here! A race to the wire is in progress in War Picture Library 71 Zero Hour.

This cover has everything going for it.

It has focus and no ambiguity.

Only one thing can happen at zero hour and the artist who painted this cover has put us right in the middle of it all.

There's so much to like. I don't believe I have ever seen a helmet so lovingly rendered as the one the main subject is wearing. The detail of the netting over the helmet and the way it fits under the helmet is just superb. The helmet strap is also just so well done.

I also like the way the advancing troops appear to be shouted out by the main subjects' intensity. Those silhouetted bayonets are both a menacing and poignant  indicator of the carnage that is about to unfold.

The best part about this cover is - there's no stupid flash cut out breaking up the flow of the image.

There's no doubt the score for Zero Hour. 10/10.
