Stuff of Interest - May 2006 - Sgt. Rock: The Prophecy #5
by Joe Kubert
Once more into the breach! Easy Company's deadline to deliver their "package" to Allied forces in Riga is getting closer by the hour, and Riga seems further away than ever. Circumstances force Rock and Easy to spend the night in a farmer's barn... and what happens next is no joke!

I'm really enjoying these "Faces of Easy" covers for the book, and this is an interesting one, with a bit of a different style for Kubert. I wonder what medium he used for it. There seems to be some modeling to bring an almost 3-D look to it. Anyway, for this series as a whole, I had a chance to read the first issue, and of course the art was good, and the story seemed promising, so hopefully there won't be too long a gap before it's all collected, and I'll try to avoid spoilers about what happens to the puppy until then.
