Grade:
CGC VF/NM: 9.0
Concocted by Robert Kanigher, known for his emotional, finely wrought genre fictions, and written by the equally pulpy Bob Haney, graced with illustrations by the immensely gifted Joe Kubert, Sgt. Rock is, bar none, the single most popular and best-loved of all comics war characters. Building on a similar character from a recent G.I. Combat issue, Kanigher, Haney, and Kubert delivered mainstream comics' first truly haunted, realistic war hero -- flying in the face of the two-fisted brawler yarns and hysterical anti-war potboilers that comprised war comics to that point. They replaced them with an affecting, shamelessly heartfelt true-war serial that followed a tired, battered, idiosyncratic force of weary warriors facing impossible odds and beating them with cynical aplomb and sweaty determination. One of the scarcest and most important of DC Silver Age keys, and a true American classic.

This is the highest graded copy of this historic comic. The cover of this book and its deep purple background make it a bear to find in high grade, as any scuffs, stresses, and folds stick out like a sore thumb. We've simply never seen a copy of this book with such rich, compelling colors, and the legendary cover image roars off the page like nothing you've seen. Simply extraordinary.
