    In line with Martins assessment of issues 1 and 2, I must insist that this is essential reading. An unyielding commentary on quite how awful war is, and how awful it is, in turn, for the people fighting for a country that cant decide whether or not it values them. Action fans will find their thirst slaked, and they might well learn a thing or two as well – as I did, actively heading out and reading about the Tuskagee Airmen almost immediately after finishing my voyage through the series as it stands. Im envisioning history buffs nodding in approval, despite the fictionalisation of the main players. But really, youve no real excuse not to pick this up. Read Full Review

    All in all, this is a must buy issue, if not series. The art alone is worth the money, so adding in Garth's scripts make it a steal. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brandy Dykhuizen Mar 7, 2016

    The lessons in racial diversity remain sharp and well arranged, but the diversity of scene and dialogue wanes a bit in comparison with the previous two issues. Regardless, I look forward to seeing Simon Coleby's rendition of the P-51 Mustangs, hinted at in the last lines of this book (and the cover preview). We've seen just how beautiful this team of Ennis, Coleby and Kalisz can make a dogfight look, and there's a thrill that comes with knowing the Tuskegee Airmen are poised to spit fire over Italy any day now.
