Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
5. “No Exit for Easy” Our Army at War #100
Kanigher and Kubert show a situation where the morale of Easy is threatened by a replacement member of the team.
4. “Luck is a Puppy Named Schatzi” Star Spangled War Stories #148
In this classic Enemy Ace tale by Kanigher and Kubert, the German war ace adopts a good luck puppy. As you might expect, things don’t go well.
3. Fax from Sarajevo
Kubert’s classic award-winning graphic novel featuring European comics agent Ervin Rustemagi? telling stories of his life during the Serbian Siege of Sarajevo through faxes that he sent to contacts around the globe, including Kubert, who turned the stories into comics. Powerful stuff.
2. “Vengeance is a Harpy!” Star Spangled War Stories #142
A powerful tale of Enemy Ace facing off against the sister of a costumed pilot who Enemy Ace had killed in the past. Some of Kubert’s greatest airplane sequences.
1. “4 Faces of Sgt Rock” Our Army at War #127
Powerful and classic piece by Kubert and Kanigher told through four different characters giving their own perspectives on Sgt. Rock. Really great work. Possibly the most acclaimed Sgt. Rock story ever, which makes sense that it’d make #1 on this list.
That’s the list! Agree? Disagree? Let us know!
