Does anyone remember the old Sgt. Rock, Haunted Tank, Fightin' Army, etc. comic books? When did these go out of print? I'm thinking in the late 1970s when Star Wars & all that sci-fi BS became popular. I still have my old books although they're severely dog-eared. It's kinda funny that I haven't read one in 35 or so years but if I pick one up I can know the plot after seeing only the first page!

I was a big fan of the war comics. Sgt. Rock, Unknown Soldier, Enemy Ace, G.I. Combat, Haunted Tank, Weird War, Fightin' Army, Fightin' Marines, I loved 'em all. I lost interest before they stopped publishing, but IIRC, the last Sgt. Rock was about '84, Unknown Soldier went out a year or so earlier, and G.I. Combat went until the mid-80s, but started including lots of furturistic sci-fi war stories.

Close, it was Gen. Jeb Stuart as it was a Stuart tank. I think it was a M-37 nomenclature. Also there was "Sgt. Nick Fury & his Howlin' Commandos"! I hate that Star Trek/Wars BS!!!
