    G.I. Combat #68 (DC, 1959) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white pages. It's the first appearance of Sgt. Rock... sort of! The arguments for this being the true "first": it appeared half a year before Our Army At War #83, it says "The Rock" on the cover, and has a story written by Robert Kanigher with Joe Kubert art. Also, the folks at DC dubbed this the first Rock story when they reprinted it in the 100-page Our Army At War #242. Even "Big Five" guru Chris Pedrin, who doesn't give this book the nod, does note, "This is a very important issue because this is where [Kanigher] consciously develops Sgt. Rock and his personality." The icing on the cake is the dramatic cover by Jerry Grandenetti. Overstreet 2007 VF 8.0 value = $476. CGC census 5/07: 1 in 7.5, 1 higher. From the Keith Marlow Collection.
