By Parker, Rechin, and Wilder. That nutty bunch in the desert is back, defending against Pretty Boy, hoping the Lost will return, and planning how to spend their 40 minutes of leave time!

As a comics buff, Crock was one of my favorites growing up. Crock was created in 1975 by Bill Rechin, Don Wilder and Brant Parker, and has become the greatest and longest-running parody of the Foreign Legion classic, Beau Geste. The genius of the off-the-wall strip is that it manages to turn the established conventions of the Foreign Legion melodrama upside down. A group of luckless legionnaires live in a fort in the middle of the desert under Commandant Vermin P. Crock, a tyrannical leader who is known to "hang people by their thumbs for the silliest mistakes." Crock chronicles the adventures of Vermin P. Crock and the other characters stationed at their grim desert outpost including the cowardly Captain Poulet, the simple-minded Maggot and camp-follower Grossie. Crock was recently introduced as part of Universal Studios' new theme park, "Islands of Adventure" in Orlando, Florida. Crock's fort is one of the anchors for the park's "Toon Lagoon" attraction, joining other nationally syndicated comics in the three-dimensional displays. this book is a collection from the late 1970s.
