Sgt. Frank Rock is a fictional infantry non-commissioned officer serving in Easy Company during World War II in the European Theatre in the DC Comics Universe. He first appeared in Our Army at War #83 (1959), and was created by Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert. Generally, Rock is considered to have come from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he worked in a steel mill. He enlisted after the Pearl Harbor attack and initially served in North Africa, where he soon rose through the ranks to become Sergeant. As he often said, “Nothin’s easy in Easy Company.”
Mr. Kubert would correct people who mentioned his success in war comics — he considered them "antiwar" comics — and that view was pinned to the page starting in 1967 when the words "Make War No More" became a familiar motto on the closing page of Sgt. Rock stories. Anyone who reads a Sgt. Rock tale is quickly informed via the gritty realism of the story, that characters like Sgt. Rock aren't glorified by the violence depicted, but horrified by it and their role in it.
