The Army of the Dead", available September 27, 2022, with illustrations by Eduardo Risso and cover by Gary Frank, plus variant covers by Frank Quitely, Charlie Adlard, Francesco Francavilla, Chris Mooneyham and Pia Guerra:

"...created by writer Robert Kanigher and illustrator Joe Kubert, 'Sgt. Rock' debuted June 1959, in DC Comics "Our Army at War" #83.

"Rock now returns to fight the most horrific enemy he’s ever encountered: resurrected dead 'Third Reich' soldiers. 

" The story begins in Berlin, 1944. 

"The Germans are flanked on all fronts by the combined 'Allied' forces, and defeat seems inevitable. 

"In a last-ditch effort to turn the tide of the war, a team of evil enemy scientists create a serum that resurrects their dead soldiers...

"...creating an army of the dead even stronger than they were in life..."
