G.I. Combat #68 - Joe Kubert art


G.I. Combat v1 #68, 1959 - Nicknamed "the Rock" for never backing down, a former boxer is even more tenacious when he becomes an infantryman. This character precedes the more famous Sgt. Rock and is regarded as an early prototype. Joe Kubert's storytelling is impressive, using several techniques to enhance the reading experience. Most noteworthy is his title page, juxtaposing the character's two different roles side by side. This story was later reprinted in >Our Army at War #242Other artists in this issue include Russ Heath.
