The Book that DC Forgot
This post is the first in what may be a continuing series where I go back and review New 52 comics that have been canceled. They are also comics that I always wanted to get around to reading, but for one reason or another I never did. The first is G.I. Combat by J.T. Krul, Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. I have to admit, when this book was announced it was kind of a laughing point with Eric and Myself at work. I would walk by and say "G.I. Combat?" and we would both giggle. We're stupid like that. Of course, this was way before we started reviewing comics.
When we started the site and divided up the books, I got two that I wasn't reading yet. Batwing and All Star Western, both written by Palmiotti and Gray. I fell in love with both (books, not the men) and looked to see what other books they wrote. G.I. Combat?!?! Well, I have read it and it is no longer a joke, but is it any good?
