It has been like 20 years since I have even seen a Sgt Rock comic.

My second favorite was the World at war series with the Sherman tank crew

Two is the MG42, right?

1.) MG42
2.) Mp40
3.) 1911
4.) Mauser
5.) Thompson
6.) Bazooka
7.) M2
8.) Garand

Maybe? I read 'em, but I'm guessing.

Great for blowing up tiger tanks with a perfect throw into an open hatch.hug.gif

"Haunted Tank". The original tank was a M-37 Stuart, not a Sherman, IIRC. Hence the ghost of "Jeb Stuart", Civil War General.

Am I too young? What the hell are you talkin' 'bout fogies.

I can only remember:

1. Japanese Nambu machine gun

and

5. Sgt. Rock's M1 Thompson.

I hope another "fogie" can remember more.

FYI - It's a DC Comic about WW2 you wippersnappers.

Man I could never get enough of that comic series. Loved it.

If you want to really go back try EC comics Two Fisted Tales. They had some great artists who could really accurately draw weapons and GI gear. If my mother hadn't cleaned out my comlcs when I went in the Army I'd be sitting pretty now.

Easy Co.!!

God, this brings back memories. Now I have to look on Ebay for a collection of Sgt ROck, and Haunted tank.

Still wrong... The orignal tank was a M3 Stuart light tank as in the picture. It had a 37mm main gun. The M3 medium tanks where the Grant and Lee but with a 75mm main gun on the right side of the hull and a 37mm in a small turrent on top. Turrents differed between the two. The Sherman was the M4 series.

Loved both comics....

3) M1 Garand

....waiting for someone to chime in about Sgt Fury and his Howling Commandos.
Link Posted: 9/3/2005 2:42:39 PM EDT
Sgt Fury ROCKED!
That was my absolute favorite comic.
Those were great days, waiting for them to put out the new issues at the Wiesbaden Exchange,
I was about 10 I guess. I saved and scrapped and bought every one I could get my paws on.

Only the best damn comic book an impressionable 8 year old could buy!!! My mom didn't like them but it was the only way she could me to read w/o browbeating me. Those and Conan the Barbarian got me reading on my own. Don't tell me you don't know Who Conan is?!!! (And nooOOoo Arnold was not the first incarnation of Conan.)

Young whipper snappers every where these days....



Back on topic... I remember reading every one of those sounds. I just can't place them after 28 years.

I still have some Sgt. Rock and G.I. Combat comics. Sadly, not very many.
Link Posted: 9/4/2005 6:48:02 PM EDT
Tag until I can look thru the boxes of comics in the basement.

Sgt. Rock & Sgt. Fury are classic.

Ahhh....Conan created by Robert E. Howard in the late 20s. He also created King Krull and Red Sonja. Back on track do miss those old WWII comics. I read all I could get. Wonder why I'm still in the Army?

Shit Ya. Sgt Rock and Ghost Tank Rocked....awesome comics. You juvenile Deliquents would be to young to have been blessed with the originals. Ahh the good ole days. I became a Tanker because of Comics like Ghost Tank....

Do they still run either of those Comics anymore? or is that part of a by gone era.....?
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 12:21:29 PM EDT
I still have a box full of those comics. I thought it was called "G.I. Combat"? I also have a few SGT. Fury's, Unknown Soldiers, and Sgt. Rock.

Loved G.I. Combat as it gave you multiple stories in one comic.
