Sgt. Rock: The Prophecy #2

Much, much better than #1 IMO. The Prophecy gets quite a bit more interesting after this second issue, and Kubert seems to be settling into the story (it's feeling more and more familiar and Sgt. Rock-y).

Rock and his squad have been charged w/ delivering a Rabbi (the "Prophecy") from Lithuania to safety in Riga (on his way to the U.S.), through badland territory frought w/ Nazi and Russian guerillas. They encounter some Nazi brutality along the way designed i'm sure to get the blood boiling for some forth-coming Nazi ass whuppin'.

Everything about this (cast, writing, art) is pretty classic Joe Kubert. If you're a fan, you'll be reading this (and enjoying it). Personally i wasn't really feeling it after #1, but had a good time w/ #2 (and renewed hope for the mini as a whole). B.

It was all over when...

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
