    This wasn't generally daring adventure. It was usually dirty and one-sided. If the character can come to terms with the fact that to survive and to win, he's going to have to abandon ideals about "fair fights" and learn to kill the enemy as quickly and with as much surprise as can be mustered, then this could really develop into a fantastic, if disturbing, character study. Given the talents of the creators involved, I expect nothing less. Read Full Review

    It's really wonderfully done, with some nice character moments, some incredible plane-based imagery, and some unexpected moments that really hit you in the gut. I can't wait to see what Ennis and Chaykin have to show us in future issues, and what horrors of war will be inflicted on their characters next. Whatever the case, I definitely know better than to get too attached to anybody. Read Full Review

    War is hell, but that hell isn't too much in evidence in this issue. Ennis and Chaykin may ramp up the hellishness of the story in the next few chapters, but so far war may be nasty or brutal, but in this comic it sure ain't hell. Read Full Review
