    This issue features a battle between Bigby Wolf and the Frankenstein monster that runs for several pages, and the since there's no dialogue or internal thought captions intruding on these page, the power of this bout is entirely dependant of the art, and I have to give Tony Akins full marks for managing to capture the sheer brutality of this clash. I mean the panels that detail the fight perfectly convey the idea that these two are going at it full tilt, and there's a wonderful final moment where we see Bigby's at his most animalistic, as he beheads the creature. The ruthless nature of Sergeant Harp is also well presented as he deals with the enemy in a manner that can only be described as chillingly effective. I also have to give this issue full marks for its cover image as in addition to be a fun visual homage to the old style war comics, the big idea of the issue is on full display. Read Full Review
