From the jaws of defeat, the Nazi war machine is resurrected by walking battleship superhuman soldiers who turn the tide of World War II. Kieron Gillen unveils his epic new monthly series, which rewrites history with a horrifying twist! Super soldiers now turn the machinations of the Twentieth Century's greatest madman into reality. The Ubers are here and the world will tremble at their feet. But a deeply entrenched spy could be the difference in seeing the world remade in the Nazi vision and the Allies finding a way to stem the tide.

He's right about this not being a book to "enjoy." But it's certainly a book worth reading. Read Full Review

    As with Issue #0, the visuals are the worst part of ber, with White and Keith Williams' linework slathered in gray by Digikore Studios. It's okay to make a comic look good, you don't have to be scared. I promise. I'd probably be happier if Digikore brought in the same palettes they use for their Archie Comics work. Read Full Review

    The extreme violence is too much, but there is no denying this is a very good comic.
