**** (out of five)

Sgt. Rock and the soldiers of Easy Company know war is hell, but they never imagined a mission that would get them so close to it.
Legendary writer/artist Joe Kubert returns to the characters that made him a comic book icon with a smart and sensitive story that sees them caught between German and Soviet forces on a mission that could change history.
As Rock and his crew battle through Eastern Europe in 1943, they face enemies on all sides — and from above as the cold and snow of winter loom — as they try to deliver a mysterious package to its extraction point.
And while they’ve been on plenty of missions and seen death in spades, nothing can prepare them for what they find in the cold wasteland.
Nobody tells war stories like Joe Kubert and getting to read fresh material from this 80-year-old creator is an amazing treat.
