Man-Up Memorial Day Monday!

Time for rememberin’ those who served…

American Hero, SGT. ROCK

(Painting by Daniel Cox)

First appeared in G.I. Combat #68 (Jan. 1959) and according to legend, he was killed on the last day of World War II by the last enemy bullet fired. Dogtag number: 409966

Sgt. Frank Rock wasn’t a Green Beret…but SSgt. Barry Sadler sure was!

Call me corny, but I’ve always loved that song.

Now a (mini) pictorial salute to Sgt. Rock!

Check out a whole bunch more of Joe Kubert’s art over at COMIC VINE…you won’t be disappointed.

But you might be disappointed in this…SGT. ROCK (IS GOING TO HELP ME) by XTC…I know, they’re British…but the damn song is called SGT. ROCK for Christ’s sake!

Maybe you were expecting something more American?

    I love Sgt. Rock and Joe Kubert. I don’t think the younger comic fans really appreciate them though, probably too old fashioned and not “Grant Morrisony” enough. Maybe if Sgt. Rock wore eyeliner, fought evil corporations and hated America it would be more fashionable.

    If I went to comic book art school, Joe would be the man for me. Kids today…just try and get them to read an entire comic about a haunted tank…sheesh.

    If it was a trans-gendered vegan tank who never missed the Daily Show then they might read it.

    Rotten He-Devil.

    Hello? “Generals and Majors” is WAY better of a song about military rankings 🙂
