Our Army at War #179 - Joe Kubert art & cover

Joe Kubert
Our Army at War v1 #179 presents Sgt. Rock, 1967 - Tensions flare when a new soldier joins the outfit. An overt racist, Sharkey makes life difficult for Jackie Johnson, Easy Company's only African-American. Both Marvel and DC addressed racial issues during this era, much to their credit. Joe Kubert's rough-hewn style conveys both conflict and camaraderie within the same tale. On page 8, the artist creates a clever split-portrait of the two main characters (see interior page below). In addition, Kubert's nobly illustrated cover does justice to the story inside. This tale was later reprinted in >DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest #18. Other artists in this issue include Jack Abel.
