Our Army at War #254 - Alex Toth art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Our Army at War v1 #254 featuring Sgt. Rock, 1973 - Sgt. Rock and Jackie are overwhelmed by the enemy on this gripping Joe Kubert cover. Alex Toth's back-up story is far more austere, chronicling the life of a World War I fighter pilot."The Tally"refers to the ace's confirmed kills. The high altitude settings are often spare, yet the artist maintains interest with perfectly drawn biplanes (see interior page below). Page design and clever sequencing also contribute to one of Toth's best period war stories. This is number 3 of 3 Our Army at War issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth, Kubert or Our Army at War issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist or Toth checklist.
