Mademoiselle Marie, DC's French Resistance Fighter of WWII, oft-time ally of Sgt. Rock in 12 inches. Marie was part of the ill-advised Dreams & Visions line where DC figures got GI Joed. Gorgeous figures, but way overpriced, so a quick death. The Marie doll didn't look anything like the comics, with thick hair, a voluptuous body, and blue eye shadow. Part of Marie's appeal is she looks almost like a girl fighting the big bad Nazis. So I swapped in a slender body and some head that looks vaguely French, a good likeness. I had to paint her skin (she was jaundiced) and reposition her bangs, then Dullcote. I cut off all the snaps and sewed the clothes close to her body. Then changed her Thompson for a German-captured machine gun and ammo pouch, which is sewn to the belt. Her one stick of dynamite was too long, so I cut it to scale and painted it pink-red like real dynamite. Vive la France!

Dude! I LOVE THIS! Sgt Rock was my favorite when I was growing up. I don't know if I've relayed this story before but my uncle worked for Bluff City News when I was a kid, it was some kind of publishing distribution, anyway for xmas every year that he worked there he gave me a HUGE box of comics. Seriously it would've filled up a couple of longboxes, it was heaven for me. I would dig through the box and try to arrange all the comics and then I (here's the point) would read the Sgt. Rock comics first. Man, you've brought back a great memory. Thanks!!!!
