Hall of Fame comic book artist Joe Kubert (d.2012) gave us seven decades of classic character artwork. Chief among Kubert's creations is rock solid war hero Sgt. Rock. Join the ranks of "Easy Company" with this original artwork panel splash page featuring Rock and his men. Created for issue #275 of Rock's main title "Our Army at War", this 10-1/2 x 15-3/4" panel features the art that took up the entire first page of the named issue, which per the publishing indica section at bottom hit newsstands in December, 1974. Predating Marvel's Sgt. Fury, Kubert's venerable "topkick" is arguably the leading military character of the comic book realm and dedicated fans eagerly seek vintage back issues long after the final issue #422 was published in 1988. A crowning jewel for your Sgt. Rock collection, this original production layout commands the auction battlefield in excellent condition with minimal signs of wear. A few small pieces of tape have discolored, but they were applied during the original publishing period and are considered an inherent part of the creation process.
