Although I grew up on the later issues of Sgt. Rock, these early issues are just as fun to read. If you like Sgt. Rock and are interested in his origins and the rest of Easy Company, it's a no-brainer buy. (It is probably also the only way you will ever own them anyway!) If you are expecting the 70's version of his comics with Enemy Ace or Unknown Soldier, you may want to buy a later version of the Archives (if DC continues to release them and I hope they do). I would not buy a Batman Archives #1 and expect the Batman of the 60's and 70's, I would expect old school (circa 1930's) Batman. This book is "old school" Sgt. Rock, and a gem at that. I can understand the other guys review that said it was not what he expected, but I think one star is a bit harsh. Take these books and other early Archive issues with a grain of salt, and try to read them in the context (or mindset) of when they were published and I think your expectations might align better. Yeah, they're hokey, corny and at times repetitious or even mediocre reading, but they are the ground floor of a great run of comics.

...a must have for your book shelf. These are the initial stories setting up the SGT Rock and Easy CO. mythos. The first five stories are worth the price of the book alone. Some earlier reviewer completely missed the boat calling these stories "boring". I really wonder about the attention span of some people. I am amazed at how silver age writers could pack so much characterization and plot into six and thirteen page stories. The artwork by Russ Heath, Jerry Grandenetti, Irv Novick, and; of course, Joe Kubert is tremendous.

These stories are fictionalized accounts of World War II produced for kids of the late 1950's; which means heroism, honor, and valor are the order of the day. Even if it is a bit unrealistic by today's standards of carnage and gore, do yourself a favor and leave the jaundiced eye at the door. The legend of Sgt Rock and Easy Company begins here. Don't miss it.

Here we have earliest Sgt. Rock stories. These aren't the most realistic war comics, but they are enjoyable. The artwork is terrific , too. I especially like the ones drawn by Joe Kubert.

I'm not into the collection of the actual comic book these days, but more interested in the story line and develoment of the techniques used in illustration and themes. This is the first of the collection and it is a great start to capture the formation Sgt Rock from "Our Army at War."

Sergeant Rock was one of my favorite comic books as a youth. I enjoy reading one of the stories as my wife watches a chick flick on TV. It does not require in depth concentration allowing me to answer my brides question while watching her show. The end result is maintaining marital bliss.

The artwork is great, and I have introduced the series to my son who now is also a fan of SGT Rock. Yes, the stories are not realistic, but it’s a comic book after all. If a reader wishes a non-fiction genre of WWII and Easy Company they should purchase the book “Band of Brothers.” Bottom line SGT Rock is fun to read and I will purchase the other DC Volumes in the future.

Just another trip down Memory Lane... but a good one! I enjoy this reproduction of my old comic books in a nicely bound book.

Brings back childhood memories. The color is superb. It is like having the original comic books bound in one volume.
