Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos #32
Issue(s): Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos #32
Review/plot: A Nazi scientist secretly hypnotizes one of the Commandos while pretending to give them a checkup.
They are then sent behind enemy lines in Norway to stop Nazi production of heavy water - and there's a couple of clever lines with the Howlers trying to figure out what heavy water is (which is odd because the Commandos dealt with heavy water in their second issue). At a critical moment, the hypnotized Howler signals the Nazis, leaving everyone wondering if there's a traitor. Eventually, the traitor - Izzy Cohen - resists his hypnotism...
...and the Howlers fight off the Nazis and destroy the heavy water factory. There are some cute lines where Nick Fury taunts the Nazis, and some really bizarre panels with Adolf Hitler doing dances of joy over his anticipated defeat of the Howling Commandos (he came up with this master plan himself, not like those other plans by that "dummkopf" Baron Strucker)...
...but otherwise it's just a pretty standard Howler story, with no real differences from the Lee years.
Well, there is one addition, and that's Ski-Nazis.
Quality Rating: C-

#30 involved Fury getting captured in Italy and #31 had them saving Gen. Eisenhower.

Seeing those three scans of a gleeful Hitler reminded me of Charles Chaplin doing his "globe dance" in THE GREAT DICTATOR.
