My First Dream Comic?

When I was going through my old SGT. ROCK work, done while I was a student at Kubert School, I found this interesting panel. It’s from a two page story I wrote, drew, lettered and (I think) colored in 1978 which saw publication the next year in SGT. ROCK #333.

It tells the story of how a young German corporal, fighting in the trenches in World War 1, experienced a suffocating nightmare of being buried in mud. He woke up in terror and ran from the trench moments before an incoming artillery round landed right on top of his platoon, killing all except the corporal. The corporal was Adolf Hitler who, in his memoirs, claimed the story was true.

I think this might be my first ever dream comic.
