Wish You Were Here, from Walter Wellman ... by Guest Contributor Evan Schad
This linen-era comic card was published by the Massachusetts company Colourpicture sometime in the early to mid-forties as part of their "Morale Builders Series A". It has some great-as-always artwork by the prolific Walter Wellman, who had been doing postcard work since the late oughts (often self-publishing his own work!). This card depicts an Army soldier razzing Adolf Hitler, which as you many know was a common subject in military comic cards around this time. There is writing on the back, but unfortunately I can't tell you what it is as I only scanned the front of this card.
