    Men of War would probably benefit from dropping the backup story and, with it, the cover price. Regardless, Brandon's story is one that deserves to be read even amid the numerous other New 52 releases. Read Full Review

    Okay, so maybe I was wrong. While I liked Men of War #1, I lamented the necessity for its ties to the DC Universe, but in Issue #2 it has become enough of a plot point to justify the setup. While I wished that it had been a more straightforward war comic, the introduction of the mysterious Circe and metahuman influence is a solid counter-balance to the unavoidable grittiness that a book with this subject matter would have.

    Men of War, overall, is one of my personal favorites, but just the Men of War story. I don't care for the Navy Seals back-ups. I love the fact DC has some non-super hero/non-mystic comics, even though we get a taste of meta-human making their way into the book, which strangely I enjoyed. I feel like this book is very new reader friendly and caters very well to people who don't understand military terminology. I'm very excited to continue reading this book, even though I didn't like this one as much as the first issue. I recommend this book. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, the characters are just as thin. It's great to have a war comic mixed in among the variety of the relaunched DC Universe, but this comic doesn't do much to distinguish itself beyond sheer page count. The stories are decent, the art is solid, but nothing in this book is amazing or astonishing. The fact that the war story is now going to be mixed up with superhuman action brings this title back into the thick off the pack, rather than letting it excel on its own merits. Read Full Review
