This was a series that mixed mild pornography with anthology. Definitely aimed at the American soldiers of World War II, Camp Comics offered the adventures of Warner Brothers cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd alongside pinups of girls. It apparently also contained other content, like Western comic strip stars, but details are currently sketchy.
Since the front covers were also pinup girls and the back covers were ads for cigarettes, it offered some social cover for the soldier who wanted to enjoy the art of Walt Kelly and Frank Thomas.
There is some dispute over the publisher. Some sources say Dell; others, Whitman.
