    While the main Elephantmen series is a color book, War Toys is presented in black and white, and I think I see the reason. That's how most of the characters - from Yvette to Horn - see each. There's black and white, day and night, good and evil. Yvette sees the Elephantmen only as monsters, just as the genetically engineered soldiers see her as a savage beast in need of eradication. Only Hip Flask (named in this story only by a number) deviates from such limited perspectives. Though the elements are over the top and fantastic, the central message - of the wasteful and spiritually devastating nature of war - is clear and quite down to earth. Read Full Review

    I expect the story to ramp up next issue, and we should get the fantastic battle scenes I was expecting in this issue. Im nowhere near giving up on my boy Rich; hes got to disappoint me further than this for me to get down about the title. I just had over extended expectations. Everything as we know it should go back to normal with issue #2. Read Full Review
