If anything, Sgt. Rock is worth reading just to see a talented writer/artist make some very unusual – and ultimately, ineffective – storytelling decisions. The book is full of missteps, but they're interesting missteps at least. And I suppose that, coupled with Tucci's vibrant art, is enough to bring me back for a second issue. Read Full Review
I was thankful when I finally finished this comic. The storyline alone dashed any hopes for the next issue, which if I do decide to pick up will only be because of the art. Furthermore, I doubt Ill be delving into the Sgt. Rock lineage anytime soon. Read Full Review
If there's a bright spot here it's that Tucci has set up this series to be as much about Sgt. Rock's struggle with the systems of war -- the commanding officers and their petty narrow-mindedness seem to be the primary antagonist, even in the aftermath of a German-led slaughter. That's not an uncharacteristic approach for a war story, but it's the only interesting thing going on here, and such conflict might allow Tucci to provide new shades to the Sgt. Rock character. But that's pure speculation, as there's little in issue #1 to indicate that the remaining issues will be worth your time. Read Full Review
