Our Army At War #200 - Joe Kubert art & cover

Joe Kubert
Our Army At War v1 #200 featuring Sgt. Rock, 1968 - For this anniversary issue, a singing GI narrates the story in rhyming verse. Easy Company arrives at a decimated village, where Nazis hold innocent people as hostages. The tale has little to do with a special 200th issue, but Joe Kubert's artwork is impressive nonetheless. Page one reeks of desolation, introducing the "Troubadour" as a lone survivor. Flowers adorn his helmet, contradicting the carnage all around him. Separate from the story, Kubert also provides an ink-and-wash portrait of Sgt. Rock and two WWII informational pages. Other artists in this issue include George Evans. See today's posts or more Kubert or Our Army at War issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist.
