Here's a few pics of Sgt Rock and Easy company with a few issues of the DC comic that inspired the figures!

The guys themselves in all their GI Joe-esque glory!

Sgt 'Rocky' and/or 'The Rock' appeared in a few comics in the late 50's in one-off stories but by the early 60's the Sgt Rock character we all knew growing up was pretty much settled apon and appearing in 'Our Army at War'.

A couple of issues from 1960/61

By the mid 60's Rock's billing as the comic's main strip was getting bigger.

(Check out the 'Enemy Ace's' story...watch them 'Fokkers' they got Stan Boardman into a lot of trouble!!)

The Nazi's were also getting more caricature 'nasty' bad guys.

By 1966 (who dosen't love DC's groovy checker header?) Sgt Rock was getting a bit less gung-ho and a bit more angst driven.

The late 60's were probably Rock's best years.

The 'Iron Major' might make a cool AM bash!

A very hip splash page to this 1969 issue. Even as a kid I thought it didn't fit. Just like Donald Sutherland's hippy tanker in Kelly's heroes!

A 40th Joe in the 'Breakout from Normandy' set.

A great set but a word of warning...the real metal helmet in the set is too small for a normal Joe's head. I've swapped mine with the plastic one supplied with Sgt Rock himself. (Just in case Dal was wondering why my Rock's helmet was different to his!)

Wow! Awesome bunch of guys.
I should be ashamed of myself as I only have one Sgt.Rock comic, I actually preferred 'Sgt.Fury & His Howling Commando's'....now there's a thought... Idea

Great uploads Steve. I have to admit that I have got to the I want them too stage.
I think we are not helping each other out here , because when I see such uploads as yours & Dal's I think , Yep I like their look etc . So I'll get me some of those . Which then costs me money that I don't have! So then comes the dilemma !!
Who's house do I rob? lol.
Great thread Steve , really nice to view these......Thanks.
PS: Got a few quid I can borrow? lol.

Fantastic post, Steve!!! I'm sorry I missed this when you posted it. Thanks for the link. Great photos of the figures and comics! I really like how you have posed the figures displaying the comics -- well done!!!

I definitely cut my comic teeth on Sgt. Rock! Yeah, sure, Superman and Batman are great, but give me Sgt Rock!!!

Thanks!
Brian

...this figure looks great Steve! Is this your photo?

I forgot you know so much about comics, I hadn't any idea these figures were featured like that. Makes them more interesting now! Very Happy
