Sometimes even the best intel isn't good enough. Rock and his men find themselves surrounded by dozens of guerrilla fighters when their last clip runs out but bullets might not be their only weapon. Also: Ice and Tracker come face-to-face with a family of human shields. Can they clear the area in time for an incoming evac without harming innocents?

    This is another solid issue. Ivan Brandon continues his excellent use of stream of consciousness, and continues to keep the reader guessing with the aforementioned series of bizarre incidents which began in the first issue. He continues to give a solid characterization of the modern day Sgt. Rock and his version of Easy Company. Tom Derenick's art matches this quite well as he shows a dark yet peaceful world versus a bright and treacherous world. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, the backup feature still fails to distinguish itself in its final month. Jonathan Vankin's tale is more generic, and honestly could be published by any comic company looking to fill its war quota. The characters never feel as vital as Brandon's, nor do the challenges they face seem as memorable. I look forward to the change-up that will come in issue #4. Read Full Review

    "Men of War" #3 is a bit of a letdown. I'm glad the lackluster back-up from Vankin and Winslade is over, and hopefully we'll get something a bit stronger in its place starting next month. But even the main feature feels like it's losing some focus, and this early in the series that's not a good thing. As one of only four titles at the $3.99 price point, "Man of War" needs to pick up the intensity next month before people start walking away for something stronger and cheaper. Read Full Review
