Summer Blogathon JOE KUBERT PRESENTS SGT ROCK "Farewell"

Ten-HUT!
..his DC Comics counterpart was equally busy along that same coastline!
Quite different in tone and style from the Silver Age Sgt Fury tale we've been presenting the last few days, this deliberately-bittersweet story from DC's Joe Kubert Presents #5 (2013) was the legendary Joe Kubert's final and fitting new Sgt Rock tale.
Until Next Time...

Summer Blogathon SGT FURY & HIS HOWLING COMMANDOS "Day of Thunder" Conclusion

Ten-HUT
...they had completed their mission to destroy the Luftwaffe base nearest Normandy and escaped the clutches of the Nazis.
Making their way to the coast, the Howlers find the invasion under way and join the assault in their own unique way...
(Yes, the cover art showing them wading ashore is inaccurate, but it's a great image, eh?)
Roy Thomas, Dick Ayers, and John Tartaglione know how to deliver a kool Silver Age classic, eh?
They would also show the Howlers at the Battle of the Bulge and other critical battles of WWII.
But where were Fury and the Howlers' DC counterparts, Sgt Rock and Easy Company, during D-Day?
If you want to know...
Until then...
Dis-missed!

D-Day 75th Anniversary "Part 6: Beachhead"

...one thing about this serial, unlike many other tellings of this tale, is the "warts and all" accuracy that doesn't "sugar-coat" the story!
Rendered by George Evans, with assists by other "Fleagle Gang" artists on various panels, this never-reprinted backup from Gilberton's World Around Us #32 (1961) has nothing to do with the book's lead features about "For Gold & Glory", the Spanish conquest of Central America and Mexico!
