    It isn't enough for DC to offer traditional war-themed comics. The lackluster sales on this series and its predecessor are proof enough of that. The tales in G.I. Combat need to showcase war as it exists in the DC Universe, reflecting all the colorful characters and concepts that dwell within. Issue #0 does a better job than any issue previous of satisfying that need. Read Full Review

    A swing and a miss with The War That Time Forgot in my opinion but I look forward to the next issue of G.I. Combat with raised expectations for The Unknown Soldier and high hopes for a better back-up story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Sep 7, 2012

    I feel that this issued failed to do what it set out to do, which is make me want to come back for more. The need for the zero numbering was overall pointless and only put there to fit with the company wide event for the month. We're dropped in the middle of two tales that, while well written and enjoyable, leave a new reader confused. Both teams on art do a good job and earn the book a slightly higher rating. At $3.99 you're getting a little more bang for your buck, and while I liked what I read, I don't know that I'll return for more war adventures. G.I. Combat #0 gets 3 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    I would think that a title like "G.I. Combat" is a hard sell for DC, without a real star character on which to pin the title. "G. I. Combat" #0 does provide an interesting break from the rigmarole of superhero books, but if you don't have a vested interest in war comics or the creators specifically involved, there's not a great deal to bring you back.
