Joe Kubert Sgt. Rock #411 Cover Original Art (DC, 1986). A magnificent cover image. Kubert began his career in comics at a very young age, and worked for a number of different companies throughout the Golden Age, but it was his distinctive work on DC's War titles that really brought him into the limelight. The Kubert version of Sgt. Rock set the style for the character that continues to this day. This late period cover is unusual in that a large portion of the art -- the stacked "Rock" logo -- was scrapped in the final printed version, to make way for a large type blurb. That was fine for the published comic, but it's clear that as an iconic piece of artwork, Kubert's original vision makes this one a classic. The large background image of Rock's face is hand-drawn in ink on an acetate overlay; the remaining art is in ink over graphite on DC/Sparta Bristol board, and the overall image area measures approximately 9.75" x 15". It's in Excellent condition. For Kubert collectors and longtime fans of DC War comics, this is one worth fighting over!
