DC is bringing back the military action:
This September, DC will bring back a number of familiar war titles in a series of one shots from a number of the best and brightest creators in the industry, including Darwyn Cooke and Ivan Brandon on WEIRD WAR TALES, B. Clay Moore and Chad Hardin on OUR FIGHTING FORCES, the return of OUR ARMY AT WAR, William Tucci and Justiniano on STAR-SPANGLED WAR STORIES and Matt Surges and artist Phil Winslade on G.I. COMBAT, with each issue sporting a cover from an A-list pool of artists that include Cooke, Mark Schultz, Geof Darrow, Joe Kubert and Brian Bolland.
Eff yes! I’m actually pretty excited about this stuff. I’ve just started getting into the non-superhero DCU of ages past and this is super awesome.
Check out these two covers that were posted over at The Source.
This stuff better make it into trade. I’m jus’ sayin. And I’m hoping it’s successful enough to get some ongoing titles going.
I hope that there are some trades worth of new WWII tales, sure, but I also hope they do some other eras. And not in just one off stories in hard to place anthology style volumes – it would be really great if they did full arcs in WWI (for one, it seems so under appreciated as a war setting. It was The Big One in its day!), some really historical stuff in the Revolutionary War era, and then do a world tour of some non-american-centric onflicts.
All with that Weird War Stories vibe, of course. Haunted Russian Tank? Yes. Sgt. Račak? Sure, lets hear it – I’ve never read a comic about the kosovo war.
