Holy cow, what a fun comic book. I think I might like this one more than any other Gray and Palmiotti book I’ve ever read. It plays like a big budget TV miniseries from the eighties or something–time travel to stop the Nazis from destroying the world in the present (a rough description, but accurate).
Gray and Palmiotti fill it with a bunch of fake, but sort of convincing sounding, science (think Michael Crichton without the research) and they sell the whole thing.
There’s some stupid stuff–like the N.W.O. (the New World Order) being the SHIELD of the comic–when did N.W.O. stop wrestling, anyway? And the introductory character stuff doesn’t matter, because they’re spending the rest of the series in the past, fighting Nazis… so who cares?
Gulacy’s art is… well, it’s modern Gulacy and he’s almost sixty and it shows.
But it’s damned entertaining comic book.
