219. Sgt. Rock / Corps of Engineers Parody

April 16, 2010

Q: Do you know of a mid ’70s issue that had a parody of the Sgt. Rock comics? It featured a Sgt. Silt of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers where they try and build a canal in the everglades.

A: Carol sez: “Sgt. Silt appeared in ‘A.C.E. Comics’ which was part of NL‘s ‘199th Birthday Book’ special in ’75. There’s no art credit, but it looks like Ralph Reese’s work. ‘Look out Sarge! Behind that Indian – A TREE!!'” Thanks, Carol!
