A brand new story arc begins here!  "T''was England bade our wild geese go, that small nations would be free..."  In the Second World War, any Irishman wanting to fight the Nazis had to join the British army- the Republic of Ireland having declared neutrality when the war began. Now, a small unit of Irish soldiers join the advance into Germany- where the going is rough and the enemy nowhere near surrender. And old tensions remain from Ireland's own struggle for independence, as well as the bloody civil war that followed. Part one of Our Wild Geese Go, by Garth Ennis and Tomas Aira. Available with Regular &Wraparound Covers by Tomas Aria, and Good Girl Nose Art & Battle Damage Retailer Incentive Covers by Matt Martin.

    Past issues of War Stories have featured arcs with a German family fleeing the Soviet advance on the Eastern Front who are saved by a small German unit; an Israeli tank crew in the Golan Heights; and WWII Allied Bomber crews flying missions over Germany. The hallmark of the series so far has been on unconventional stories that focus more on realistic portrayals of people involved in war as opposed to grizzled combat vets with a 50 caliber machine gun in one hand and a grenade in the other storming an enemy bunker single-handed. I've never read war stories quite like these and I'm glad Avatar is publishing them. If you think you might enjoy an examination of war from a slightly different angle than you may have seen before, War Stories is definitely worth checking out. Read Full Review

    This series continues to be a thoughtful and conservative staple of why America and it's allies are so great and that war is sometimes necessary to overcome evil in the world.
