    DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock vs. The Army Of The Dead #6 gives horror/grindhouse fans exactly the ending they want to see. The brutal fight between Sgt. Rock and Hitler is cheer-worthy, and the epilogue teases even weirder adventures.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Still, it’s the small details that drive DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of the Dead #6, as well as the entire series. Campbell and Company do a masterful job with the little things. From phrases written on bombs to sayings that perfectly place the time era, this fun army comic with a zombie twist has so much to offer. Sure, the character development and plot threads were certainly pretty basic. The depth within the narrative was extremely surface-level. Nonetheless, Campbell and Company knew what they were designing here. DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of the Dead wasn’t meant to be this higher-level, cerebral, spine-tingling narrative.

    It was always meant to be an old-school army comic with a zombie twist showcasing one of the world’s most hated men. Entertainment was always the key and you can thank this art team for providing some of the most graphic renderings this side of the Allies. If you have the extra change, I recommend picking up DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of the Dead #6 even if you haven’t been following along to date. Why? Well, readers get an opener that basically summarized events to this point and wraps a pretty bow around the series with a punishing onslaught of brutality toward Hitler to seal the deal. If that’s your cup of tea, I’d pick this issue up even if you haven’t been following along to date.

    Easy Company’s private attack against Hitler’s zombie Nazis reaches its conclusion this issue. Writer Bruce Campbell hasn’t penned a particularly verbose mini-series and he’s even more restrained with the dialogue this issue. (…) Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of the dead was a wild, fun ride with Sgt. Rock vs the undead. Campbell teases a potent sequel, which could be just as exciting a guilty pleasure.

    It’s all been building to this—Sgt. Rock vs. Hitler. The Nazi madman’s mad science program to create undead soldiers has been a success, leading to five issues of grunts vs. zombies. But now Hitler’s turned the experiment on himself, turning himself into a hulking monster, and he won’t let himself be taken… semi-alive. That means this issue is almost entirely based on one simple pleasure—watching a U.S. officer beat the hell out of the ultimate Nazi until there’s nothing left but a racist smear. The ending hints at Rock’s future career, but I don’t know if Campbell will be back to follow up on it. What I do know is that this was ultimately a story with a very simple plot that it executed very well. It put a fun twist on the classic Easy Company stories, with brilliant art by Eduardo Risso that elevated the whole affair. I could see it easily being a fun R-rated animated movie down the line.

    Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of the Dead ends in about as satisfying of a way as possible – with a zombified Hitler being blown to bits in violent, gory fashion. The book was never meant to be more than a fun romp, and in that sense Bruce Campbell (yes, that one) delivered as the author. And while it never did much to separate itself from the surprisingly large amount of Nazi zombie content that’s already out there, it never necessarily dropped the ball either. If nothing else, I’d be curious to see what Campbell would do with a more established comic character like The Punisher. Then we could get into some real fun.
