Our Army At War #192 - Joe Kubert art & cover

Joe Kubert
Our Army At War v1 #192 featuring Sgt. Rock, 1968 - Mystery planes and hidden airfields bring Sgt. Rock and the Teenage Underground Fighters of Unit 3 together once again. Sadly, Joe Kubert's drawings are watered down considerably by Jack Abel's inks. Fine lines are omitted or oversimplified. Even the two-page portrait of Easy Company (pages 5-6) is diminished due to lack of detail. Kubert's cover is far better, with its tightly cropped layout. Note how Rock's head and the pistol frame the teen-age supporting characters. See today's posts or more Kubert or Our Army at War issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist.
