Comics Alliance posted one of my pages for the Creepy 50th Anniversary issue, so here it is, and below it, the raw scan of the inks for the page. My lettering was just a placeholder, so I could compose the page with the right ‘weight distribution’. Lettering is by Nate Piekos.

The “Reel” Catch-22

Joseph Heller’s World War II novel Catch-22 often tops the lists of banned books.  Heller’s own experiences as a bombardier during the war provided the source material for many of the situations in the book.  His experience also found its way onto the big screen, by way of an Army film, “Training During Combat.”

Recently, Burton Blume, the son of the producer of the film (Lt. Wilbur Blume), helped NARA staff uncover footage of this film while tracing his own father’s experiences as a cameraman during the war.  Mr. Blume wrote a series of guests posts for the National Archives Special Media Division’s blog “The Unwritten Record,” discussing his father’s story, Catch-22 author Joseph Heller’s involvement in the film, plus a number of real life incidents from 340th Bomb Group War Diaries which likely inspired situations in the novel.
