Review by Sebastian Piccione
Palmiotti and Gray have proven there is no genre they can’t write. In fact, there’s almost no genre left out of this espionage-action-mystery-science-fiction-WWII-thriller.
When, in the near future (next year) a German construction crew stumbles (literally) upon a secret underground city/fall-out shelter from WWII the pros are called in. And when the pros accidentally launch Hitler’s derelict Omega Bomb, the pros call in some specialists. These guys are going to be sent back in time to stop the launch… but end up overshooting to WWII Germany!
Fast paced and well thought out, this book makes for one cinematic read. To me, it had that vibe of a BBC sci-fi series and Quentin Tarrantino’s INGLORIOUS BASTARDS. Which means it was a lot of fun, folks! And, the legendary Paul Gulacy’s art gave it just the right look and tone, bringing me back to his James Bond series in the ’90s.
This bang-up first issue gets us rolling, and does a great job of introducing us to the characters as it sets the stage for what promises to be a fantastic (in the original sense of the word) and surprising series.
