The Iron Corporal

The Iron Corporal was a fictional character appearing first as a recurring character in Charlton Comics' war comics line, and briefly in his own comic book titled "The Iron Corporal". His first appearance was in "Army War Heroes" #22 in 1967.

The stories, written by Willi Franz and drawn by Sam Glanzman (one story was written by Charles Nicholas and drawn by Vince Alascia), revolved around an American corporal fighting with the Australian army in the Pacific during the Second World War. The Iron Corporal's backstory includes having his ribs replaced with an iron rib cage. The stories are only loosely connected and depict the struggles of infantrymen in war.

Franz was also responsible for two other recurring series, The Lonely War of Captain Willy Schultz and The Devil's Brigade.
