Fightin' Marines was originally published by St. John publishing, and has become one of the great war anthology classics of the era. Legendary artists drew for this patriotic series, including Matt Baker, Carmine Infantino, Mort Drucker and Gene Colan.
Fightin' Marines #2 (Oct. 1951) featured the first story of a comely waitress/cook at a military base canteen, the aptly named Canteen Kate. Kate was the epitome of a "Baker girl"-- sassy, perky and wholesomely sexy. This well-meaning "Bombshell from Brooklyn" invariably became involved in situations that were rife for disaster. Frequently it involved her boyfriend, the hapless Private Al Brown.
