War Comics Family

"War Comics Family" from Sgt. Rock vol.1 #422 (DC, 1988) by Robert Kanigher, Joe Kubert, Andy Kubert and Adam Kubert
How long-lived is Sgt. Rock as a character? Enough that his series was still being published when the over-bright Flexographic process took over. He first appeared (in his best-known form, there were prototypes in previous issues) in Our Army at War #83 (June 1959), appearing in every issue after that, right up until the point DC had to rename the series Sgt. Rock. By then, it was up to issue #302 (March 1977) and would last anoter 120 issues to #422 (July 1988). Crazy. His last issue is advertised on the cover as the first comic Joe Kubert worked on with both his sons - Andy on inks and letters, and Adam on colors.
