RIP Sarge

...out.

As a gift, he put me in a faux cover of the G.I. Combat Haunted Tank comic, which was my favorite growing up as a kid. Although Kubert did some of the Haunted Tank comics, he did not create it. My step son told me that Joe was still working right up to his demise. He had seen him last year at a ComiCon show, where they were both featured artists - pretty good company, I might add. My stepson has his own comic book line. I met Kubert at my son's graduation. Kubert was a big strapping guy and the last time my step son saw him he gave him a playful belt in belly as a signature "hello".

I still have some of my comics from my Childhood. Wish I had kept more of them now.

Great to get added to a comic cover eh Mike? I remember when he did this for you a few years ago.

Also good to see you last week. I need your help with pics for an article on Sgt.Peter Tolusiak.

Drop me an e-mail when convenient.

Mike

"Enemy Ace", "The Blue Max"movie and "Heroes and Aeroplanes of The Great War" by Phelan hooked me on WWI aircraft when I was a kid. I built every Aurora kit I could get my hands on. Of course I painted them like they appeared in "Enemy Ace". Kubert was a giant in the comic-book field.

I found them in the closet of my old bedroom along with all my other comic books after my mom passed. I have them all in plastic slips now and occasionally pull a few to read and remember simpler times.

I spent many a day in the forest with my friends playing Sgt Rock . Wow memories! RIP Rock.

The interesting thing is with all the new super hero hype my 14 yr old daughter has started pulling them out and reading them with her friends. It brings a smile to my face to see her reading those same comic books I read so many years ago.

She gets a big kick out of the old ads and the fact that these books only cost 10 to 25 cents each.
