    Reading "Unknown Soldier" makes me think less of an ongoing series and more of a mini-series that somehow got expanded into a much larger piece.

I hate to say it, but if you skipped some issues between its debut and now, I don't think you'd have missed too much. Dysart and Ponticelli are talented, and they've got a story to tell. But if the pace doesn't pick up soon (and perhaps a change of locale to another conflict elsewhere in the world), I fear that "Unknown Soldier" is going to quietly stumble into an unmarked grave.
