    All in all, this is another rip roaring yarn of derring-do, but deeper down, this comic explores just how close to victory the Germans came at Stalingrad, and just how close to the bare bones the Russian forces really were. The creative team have done this really well. Read Full Review

    Johnny Red is, for me, the best non-superhero book on the racks right now, and it's one that I firmly believe you should be checking out. Whether you love this series as much as I do, however, is a question that only you can answer. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Jan 11, 2016

    Ennis is often criticized over the ultra-violence, Johnny Red is relatively tame. The aerial dogfights depersonalize the violence when Red and his comrades are shooting down Germans. But as the tides of battle turn, Keith Burns line art evokes the visceral pain and loss of combat. His detail heavy fighter jets contrast with the blood that splatters the windshield, sickly coloured by Jason Wordie. The imagery seizes your mind. Johnny Red #3 doesnt want you to forget the reality of war. Read Full Review
