I’m interested in the idea of this book, but the execution fell flat for me. I had a hard time keeping track of who people were, mostly due to the poor art. From page to page I had to wonder, “Is that the same guy from the previous part?” Not enough differentiation between them. This looked like your typical Avatar Press comic, which is not saying much. The plot was all over the place as well, and the pacing was not great. I think the writing could have given us a more clear idea of who was doing what, but it didn’t. Hard to develop much character in one issue, but I would think a seasoned writer could do more to help readers understand and care what the hell is going on. I’ll check out the next issue, since this is a “0″ and things might pick up, but I’m not holding my breath.

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 1 - Poor

    @kennyg – Your review pretty much summed up my opinion on this comic. I tend to really enjoy Gillen’s writing, and did like the back matter essay he wrote, but the art just took me out of it. I just feel grossed our by Avatar art. It’s not just the penciler. I feel like Avatar doesn’t pay attention to coloring and inking. Great job. I would give Gillen 3/5 and my sentiment on the art is the same as yours.

    I really wanted to like the writing. I’m a WWII history fan (I don’t know enough to qualify as a “buff”!), so I had hopes for this. But it was so scattered and awkward. Even the panel progression was awkward. It did not read well. I’ll flip through #1, since this might just be a thrown-together #0 issue, but the outlook is not good.
