With the Battle of Stalingrad in full and savage swing, the Russians are throwing everything they have at the Nazis, in an effort to turn the battle's tide. Caught up in the fighting is Johnny and his squadron of fighter pilots, the legendary Falcons, and the Nightwitches, an all-female unit flying ancient biplanes in a very one-sided war. But for Johnny, the war is about to take a very sudden, and unexpected, twist!

    At the end of the day, this is probably the best non-superhero book on the racks that I'm reading right now, and it's certainly one of the better comics, too. Whether you love this series as much as I do, however, is a question that only you can answer. Read Full Review

    Johnny Red #2 is an "end of the beginning" comic, and tends to feel like the second half of issue 1, ending just as the main storyline begins. Still, the stage is now nicely set, the actors properly placed, and I'm excited to see the show, so - play on! Read Full Review

    War books aren't really my think and I was expecting to be boredby this second issue. However the gusto by which the creators have attacked the book makes for an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Garth Ennis' revival of the Johnny Red character throws us straight into the dogfights of World War II this time, with a lavishly detailed dogfight from artist Keith Burns gracing the title pages. Read Full Review

    The tremendous return of Johnny Red continues. An rip roaring adventure with vivid art. If you're not reading this comic, you should really give it a go. A nice touch is the backup interview with the 1970's Battle editor.

    I like Captain Petrova, I hope we see more of her. The beginning is exciting and the political officer adds good tension.
