After reading a bunch of superhero comics this weekend, I picked this series out of my pile. Definitely a refreshing change of pace from the superhero stuff.

Joe Kubert is a great artist, and he's really at the top of his game here. I remember enjoying his work on many of the war comics I read when I was a kid. It's great to see him back on a classic character like Sgt Rock, but with modern printing and coloring. The art here is really great.

The story is a little weird, and it seems like the kind

Thin story, BEAUTIFUL art.

Rock and Easy drop into Lithuania to save a young Jewish rabbi. I think Kubert does a good job allowing the kid to grow on Rock, and Easy's initial misgivings about the importance of the mission work for me. I don't feel like we ever really got to know the Easy guys very well though. Given my relative unfamiliarity with the characters, I would've liked more depth, but I did feel a ping of regret when three of the Easys were killed.

That said, while the story is simply pa

Serviceable but uninspiring; a too-forced plot puts Easy company in the background of their own tale.

Sgt Rock by Joe Kubert brings for many of us a trip back to our childhood as he presents Sgt. Rock and Easy Company in a graphic novel.
Rock and Easy Co. have been to North Africa and the Rhine,now as the allies are entering Europe, Easy find themselves in the North of Europe in No Mans land. This area is first pummeled by the Germans and then by the Russians with neither side maintaining a hold on the area.
To this area Rock and Easy come, seeing a glimpse of the horrors that are yet to come. The

Kubert, the author, teacher, editor, educator, is much missed. Thankfully, in his last decade, he returned to some familiar characters of his, like Sgt. Rock and Tor.
I look on this tale as visiting subjects editorial strictures might not have allowed before the 1970s or the time Kubert left DC editorial offices. Like: messianic Judaism, the Holocaust, and mortality in wartime.
I am curious about the historical background here, as the Baltic city of Riga is referred to constantly as in Estonia, wh

This was more of a trip down comic book memory lane than the previous Sgt. Rock book that I had read. This was the artwork and characters that I remembered from my days as a comic book reading youngster. And match that with a decent story with plenty of action to make for a fun little trip down memory lane.

My first Sgt. Rock started off very strong and the muted colors do an interesting job of emphasizing the ugliness and boredom of war but couldn't maintain the intensity throughout. I also never really had a handle on all the soldiers of Easy company. It is still a strong story but I wanted a lot more.

God damn, Joe Kubert was awesome. PROPHECY has a rather lackluster ending, but when Kubert draws a war comic, there's hardly anything that could make it unenjoyable. He was the greatest war comics artist without a doubt and this return to Sgt. Rock, Kubert's most famous character, shows an artist still at the top of his game clear into his twilight years.

Frank Rock y su Easy Company son asignados a una particular misión: Servir de escolta a un particular joven a través del fiero invierno del este europeo. Alianzas incómodas, crueles enemigos y más de una amarga sorpresa espera al grupo en el carnicero frente ruso. Otra acertada pincelada de la guerra y su horror gracias al talento experimentado de Joe Kubert.
