    Description

    G.I. Combat #68 (DC, 1959) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. The first appearance of Sgt. Rock? Many do make that argument. 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 2010 FN 6.0 value = $276; VF 8.0 value = $782. CGC census 7/10: 3 in 7.0, 3 higher. From the Andy Greenham Collection.
