features Sgt. Ben Stryker and his Death Squad. Rescuing his band of
war-hardened combat-happy commandos from certain death, Stryker assembles
his group made up of unhappy US Army prisoners Lee Shigeta, judo expert
(and of Asian origin); Duke Ripley, circus acrobat; Turk Ankrum, behemoth
pro wrestler, and Ice Marko, gangster (and of course, his last name
ends in a vowel). They start out as jailbirds and end up as heroes.
By issue #3, the convicts get pardoned for their heroic exploits and
wonder how they'll spend the rest of the war in retirement. Unfortunately,
these Archie Goodwin written tales end with #3.
