He was to DC comics what Jack Kirby was to Marvel comics. The best."Enemy Ace" was fantastic.With the loss of John Severn a few months ago, the ranks of great comic-book war artists is getting very thin.

RIP

Man I loved Sgt Rock, the Haunted Tank and Unknown Soldier. I was suprised to recognize and later be told he drew the comics for the Army's PM magazine. So we add Connie and Bonnie as well MSG Half-Mast to the list of Old Soldiers fading away.

Gods speed and thank you for a great childhood.

I grew up with Rock and Easy Co. Jeb and the Haunted tank, I have most of them still. He made childhood a real adventure following them from comic to comic. Brock

PM Magazine....

August 15 2012, 7:52 AM 

When I was going through AIT at Fort Knox, one of our instructors told us that either connie or bonnie where based off a girl who worked at the Ft. Knox Exchange....

AFAIK, PM Magazine is still going strong, I've seen one or two floating around my job

Never been a fan of DC comics...

August 15 2012, 7:41 AM 

... But I do remember enjoying the Sgt Rock series back when I was real young. As a matter of fact, this and my father's enjoyment of old war flicks is probably what kindled my interest in military things.

God speed, Mr. Kubert.

Yep, with 50 cents a week for allowance, I could get a new model and comic book every other Saturday (and have the model built by Sunday!) and still get a pop, some chips and some jawbreakers with which to rot my teeth. happy.gif

Tarzan

August 15 2012, 10:46 PM 

I think I still have most of his Tarzan books, bought them from a dealer, never even read them.
Might still have the first Enemy Ace also.

One story line I remember

August 16 2012, 12:56 PM 

was either he ends up in the jungles of Latin America or he stumbles upon an ancient copy of the pyramids of Chichen Itza on the African continent. He battles a lost tribe of Mayans to rescue the sacrificial shapely damsel, blah, blah blah.

Gary Skinner......

August 16 2012, 4:58 PM 

from Columbus, Ohio. That name is indelibly etched into my brain because he would have a letter to the editor published in just about every darned DC comic title from the early through late 1960s. It didn't matter which comic you opened; there was another Gary Skinner letter. It seemed that he appeared in more issues than either the Palisades Amusement Park coupons or Johnson-Smith ads.

ads

August 17 2012, 8:42 PM 

I remember cutting out those ads, so somewhere, someplace, there is a valuable comic missing part of a page....
I just hope it's not one of those that they paid to be sealed forever in plastic, comics are meant to be read, they are not baseball cards.
