    I'm so glad DC is sticking with their guns and continuing to offer something more than just super-hero stories to their readers. This book is a great example of taking a classic idea and revamping it for a new generation. Both War Time Forgot and Unknown Soldier are very different stories, but all-in-all, they're war stories at heart that work incredibly well together because they are backed by a fantastic group of writers, artists, and editors.

    Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray improve their take on the new Unknown Soldier in this issue. The character is fleshed out a bit more, and the writers spend ample time showcasing his superhuman abilities in action. The result is a perfectly competent, grounded take on superhuman warfare. Dan Panosian's jagged, scratchy style suits the tone of the story well. The problem is that it doesn't do anything new with the Unknown Soldier concept. It's a simple modernization of the original character. Not for the first time, I find myself wondering why DC couldn't have brought back Joshua Dysart's mature, fascinating re-imagining of the concept. Read Full Review
