    Plus: army men vs. dinosaurs! The concept still has its appeal, forty years after Robert Kanigher drove it into the ground. Read Full Review

    IGN - Daniel Crown May 7, 2008

    Despite its use of characters from multiple eras, I call TWTF a WWII serial because it more or less falls under the trappings of the science fiction stories from that time period. Its focus on air fights and the setting of the mysterious island itself give the book a serious dime-novel vibe, for better or worse. The War that Time Forgot certainly won't win over those of you who don't enjoy the camp inherent in the old serials, or for that matter those of you who are tired of the genre's suddenly en vogue status in the industry, but as for me, I'm intrigued enough to give the book a chance as the story itself begins to materialize. There's some promise here, even if the first issue was somewhat underwhelming. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Robert Hyland May 10, 2008

    Arguing over distribution and use of hand grenades aside, The War that Time Forgot is your standard first issue: Action scene, new character, action, new character, rinse, repeat. Hopefully, in the next issue, Jones can show us some reason behind the assembly of these characters and some sort of plot. Read Full Review
