Named by James Gunn as an influence for Gods and Monsters, the first chapter of the new DC Universe film and television slate! This volume inspires the upcoming series CREATURE COMMANDOS.

In one of DC's strangest comics ever, a werewolf, a vampire, a gorgon, and Frankenstein's monster fight the German forces during World War II.

Originally published in the early 1980s, The Creature Commandos laid the groundwork for series like FRANKESTEIN, AGENT OF S.H.A.D.E.

Collecting Weird War Tales #93, 97, 100, 102, 105, 108-112, 114-119, 121 and 124—Creature Commandos is the perfect mix of supernatural and sci-fi!

About Author

J.M. DeMatteis was a music critic but gave it up for becoming an award-winning writer best known for his personal works such as Moonshadow and BROOKLYN DREAMS. He began writing for DC in the late 1970s and rose to prominence with characters such as the JUSTICE LEAGUE revamp of the 1980s, a franchise that earned him an Eisner Award in 2004 for Best Humor Publication. He has written every major character at DC and Marvel, using that experience for a successful foray into animation writing including episodes of Justice League Unlimited and Batman: the Brave and the Bold.

Robert Kanigher has long been recognized as one of the most prolific and innovative writers and editors in the comic book industry. Since the 1940s, Kanigher wrote and/or created more characters than nearly anybody else in the field, including Batman, Blue Beetle, Steel Sterling, Black Canary, Captain Marvel, the Flash, Sgt. Rock, the Haunted Tank, Wonder Woman, Lois Lane and innumerable war, horror and romance scripts. Kanigher scripted the Silver Age Flash’s origin story in Showcase #4 and contributed several more tales to his subsequent Showcase appearances before finally returning to the character for an extended run as regular writer on The Flash in 1970.
