There was a time, a number of years ago, when DC was considering the prospect of adapting Sgt. Rock for the big screen, with Arnold Schwarzenegger attached in the title role. It was never made, as fans couldn't get past the image of the Austrian-born film icon as the all-American Rock.
The latest entry from DC's new horror line brings Rock & Easy Company back to World War II to fight off not just ordinary Nazis, but ones raised from the dead in a desperate attempt by Hitler to win the war.
Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of The Dead, written by actor and comics fan Bruce Campbell in his DC debut, with artwork by Eduardo Risso, in the style, after a fashion, of Mike Mignola, is a totally weird thrill ride. In this short trailer, Campbell lays it out.
The first issue teases the debut of Harley in this continuity----because marketing wants it-----and sets up one crazy mystery that's more in tune with the 90's than the Golden Age. A nexus of Bat-realities, if ya will. I'm in.
Zan was killed off within the 1st issue or two. Now, in issue 9, after inheriting her brother's water-based powers, Jayna's quest for revenge ends, thanks to a vampiric Aquaman. I AM SO NOT DIGGING!!
