Finally found something for my Joe Kubert "In Memoriam" post.

Among the characters Kubert's art graced is one Sergeant Frank Rock, who was the star of "Our Army at War" for many years.



Three pages of eleven from the lead story, "300th Hill", and a bonus.

Nothin's easy for Easy Company! )

Next time, probably something from the public domain.

Bonjour, Ladies and Gentlemen! Chocochuy reporting for duty!

It has been a crazy semester for me at the Master of Humanities but I managed to survive with good grades so I am back to continue documenting the story of the most Mischievous Monocled Mugger of the DC Universe, the Gentleman Ghost. Last sessions dealt with his Golden Age appearances so today I am proud to present the Silver Age adventures of our favorite Apparitional Aristocrat. It may be true that he remained in Limbo for a while but he has cleaned the dirt off his hat, taken his fancy suit out for dry cleaning and polished his prized monocle just to return to his artistic business. It's Showtime!

Greetings, Ladies and Gentlemen!

As always, I am delighted to meet you for another session of the history of the most polite Master Moonlighter of them all, Gentleman James Craddock (a.k.a. Gentleman Ghost). Today I have secured some airplane tickets for all of us to venture towards the beautiful city of Paris so we might later return home on a cruise-boat. Passengers should take good care of their belongings unless they want the Phantom Plunderer to give a new home for their hearts and jewels.

Let's start our journey now.

Greetings, Mortals! Chocochuy reporting for duty.

Are you ready for the haunting of a lifetime? Are you ready to bow down in respect before the most elegant phantom of them all? Are you ready to have your heart stolen by the thief that duked it out with Hawkman and the DC Trinity? If so, I am proud to present you the first installment of the epic history of the true master of illusions, the one and only Gentleman Ghost. This ambitious project has been a labor of love so I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. Let us begin!

Hi folks!

Hope your Thursday was good, and everyone is quite recovered.

I'm using "Weakness Week" as an excuse to run a few pages of this character...



Can you guess his secret weakness?

For those of you who haven't met the character before, the Silent Knight was actually Brian Kent, son of Sir Edwin Kent. Sir Edwin was co-ruler of a fiefdom with Sir Oswald. Oswald didn't want to share, and treacherously slew Sir Edwin. Brian realized what had happened, but could not speak out against Sir Oswald, as he was now sole ruler, and Brian was not yet of age. So Brian adopted an identity-concealing set of armor to fight for the common people against Sir Oswald's misrule. One problem--the full-face helmet wasn't going to be enough. Brian had a very distinctive voice, so he couldn't go the standard superhero route of lowering it a notch and speaking gruffly; he had to remain silent or have Sir Oswald prove that the outlaw Silent Knight was the same person as Brian Kent and legally have him put to death.

This is a fairly typical story, "The Three Flaming Dooms!" It was originally printed in The Brave and the Bold #15 in 1957, but this is the 1974 reprint in The Brave and the Bold #112. 3 1/3 pages of ten.

Apologies in advance for the crooked scans. )

We continue our holiday posts with a few focusing on Sgt. Rock, which, aside from the strip in Wednesday Comics, are honestly the only stories of him I've read.
