    Russ Heath - Original Art for Our Army at War #255, Complete 14-page Story, "What's It Like?" (DC, 1973). Desk-jockey Sgt. Egbert relays orders to Sgt. Rock and Easy Co., and wonders what it's like to be on the front lines... "You guys in Easy are lucky! Moving all the time -- seeing and doing things..." Meanwhile, Rock and Co. are dodging bullets, mortars, and grenades, losing lives in the fulfillment of often trivial orders. Writer Bob Kanigher's point may be a bit obvious, but there's plenty to celebrate in the astonishing artwork of Russ Heath, who keeps this episodic story moving through a series of spectacularly-rendered set pieces, with the usual kinetic action. Rarely has Rock seemed so grizzled and battle-weary, every hour of the war etched into his face. Many consider Heath's '70s war stories to be the zenith of his impressive career, and this story is strong evidence. A true masterpiece. Fourteen pages, each measuring 10.5" x 16".
