It's not the War on Drugs, but these SAS soldiers find themselves battling for control of a poppy field. Can they knock out this Taliban cell's money source in order to win the bigger battle? Plus: It might have been battle skill or luck that helped Blake survive the crash of his patrol helicopter in Iraq but which will get him through returning to civilian life?

    James Robinson and Phil Winslade did an amazing job with the first story. Robinsons writing does a fantastic job of allowing Men of War alum Phil Winslade to tell the story. The second story with JT Krul and Scott Kolins do a great job. Krul does equally great with the writing, and Scott Kolins does a fantastic job detailing the different characters. These two teams really know how to tell a story, and I wish they would stay on for the long run. Looks like I will be picking up the replacement title GI Combat instad hope it is as good as Men of War.. Read Full Review

Men of War had that at first, not that this identity helped it much on the sales charts. But this is something DC's next war comic needs to focus on if it has any hope of long-term survival.
