Comic Book Reviews - Men of War #7 Review
Category: Comic Book Reviews
The first story focuses on George Saint S.A.S. His current friend recounts how he met George. He recounts George’s fighting with Islamic fundamentalists. George barely survives but takes him down and escapes.
The second story focuses on Coop, Fish, and Gonzalez. Gonzalez dies in a plane crash after being shot down by an unknown enemy. Fish makes his way back home. He is greeted with applause and love while the current situation takes hold. Fish sees his brother and a friend shooting in a video game, and looks at them with disgust as he cannot understand how they can pretend shoot. Fish goes to a job interview, and is upset as he listens to another job applicant apply. They do both interviews in the same room, and Fish is wondering what his sacrifice was for in the first place. Meanwhile on the battlefield, Coop dies, and back home, Fish goes to the graveyard. He goes to reflect on the sacrifice of many soldiers at the graveyard, and then makes a friend who was a Vietnam veteran.
James Robinson and Phil Winslade did an amazing job with the first story. Robinson’s writing does a fantastic job of allowing Men of War alum Phil Winslade to tell the story. The second story with JT Krul and Scott Kolins do a great job. Krul does equally great with the writing, and Scott Kolins does a fantastic job detailing the different characters. These two teams really know how to tell a story, and I wish they would stay on for the long run. Looks like I will be picking up the replacement title GI Combat instad…… hope it is as good as Men of War…..
