1st Sgt. Rock (4/59)
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.
