Joe Kubert back on Sgt. Rock.
Does anything more need to be said?
Kubert is one of the most important and influential comic book creators of the 20th century, but don’t think the 79-year-old is done telling great stories yet.
The Korean War veteran, whose name has become synonymous with Sgt. Rock after illustrating and occasionally writing the character’s World War II adventures for over 30 years, is back with another mission for the men of Easy Company.
The Prophecy opens with the soldiers parachuting into Lithuania, a no-man’s land between the German and Soviet armies that is constantly under fire. Their mission: collect a mysterious package and return it to U.S. forces.
But things are never that easy (pardon the pun) for this company and issue #1 ends with a rather surprised group of men when they discover just what it is they have to transport.
The Prophecy is classic Kubert and classic Sgt. Rock.
