    So, once again, here's a series that's highly recommended - a great primer for new readers, and a real blast from the past for us old-timers. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Aug 28, 2010

    If there is any weakness in the comic, it is the lack of excitement. The framing story, with a cop worrying about his childhood friend, just seems dull, like some "educational lesson" that is inserted into a children's book. Read Full Review

    It's hard to read this and not feel like it's DC's answer to Marvels and Astro City. The story about the cop definitely has some meat to it, but it's playing second fiddle to too many random one-offs that seem to just be there to clarify continuity. Still, the art is slick and it's definitely a charming trip down memory lane. Read Full Review

    The bonus story is a reunion of DC's war comic heroes, made to order by Joe Kubert. The story is set as occurring on the July 4th and the reunited characters are regaling each other with yarns of yesterday, including a tale of Sergeant Rock's death. Kubert is always welcome to share a tale of Frank Rock and the Easy Company. It serves as a nice contrast to the bold, garish costumes worn by the characters visited in the main story of this issue.
