Our Army at War #91 - Joe Kubert art


Our Army at War v1 #91, 1960 - Joe Kubert fills the issue with three gritty Sgt. Rock tales. In “No Answer from Sarge”, a soldier fights against his instincts to flee from combat. “Old Soldiers Never Run” features a old GI that fights with heart and ferocity despite his age. Perhaps most unusual is “The Silent Piper”, the story of a Scottish bagpipe player that accompanies the unit on a daring attack. All three Kubert works are drawn with gusto, despite the varied page lengths. His layouts are varied, aided by well-crafted opening splashes. The first story was later reprinted in Star Spangled War Stories #162, the second in Our Army at War #247 and the third in Our Army at War #159. Other artists in this issue include Jerry Grandenetti. See today's posts or more Kubert or Our Army at War issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist.
