Uncle Sam - Bigger Than Life

"Uncle Sam - Bigger Than Life" from National Comics vol.1 #16 (Quality, 1941) by Will Eisner and Lou Fine
This Golden Age series from Quality Comics ran through the 40s and introduced WIll Eisner's Uncle Sam and also made use of other "public domain" characters like Paul Bunyan and Merlin the Magician. National also featured original characters, most notably Quicksilver (the character who became Max Mercury in the DCU). Apparently, issue 18 features an attack on Pearl Harbor by the Germans, a month before the Japanese attacked the same (that's not it above).
