Greatest Joe Kubert Stories Ever Told!

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!

Glad to see Tor get some love.

I like how the entire top 5 is all war stories. The genre really doesn’t get enough attention from modern comics fandom.

Schatzi! Noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just read that one in the Enemy Ace second Archive. Kubert draws an unbelievably adorable puppy.
The Harpy story is great, but I was annoyed they promptly forgot about her. When her brother turns up alive, the series seems to abandon and forsake her time in the sky.

Love, love Enemy Ace, my favorite DC series of all time, and maybe my favorite comic series period.

Yes, Sgt. Rock, Enemy Ace and Fax From Sarajevo on the top 5, as they deserved. Democracy works!
