First, Crazy Keller from Garth Ennis and Chris Burnham gives us a new viewpoint of the war. Officially the war is over, and Keller is thinking about what comes next. Things aren’t that easy, as remnants of the Nazis still refuse to stop fighting. Even when all is lost and the war is finished. It does take an interesting turn when the plan is revealed, and there are some interesting aspects which probably have some real-life background. There is some good character work, and the art takes advantage of the action and the back-and-forth moments well.
D-Day Dawson isn’t a character I was aware of - but you get a bit of his backstory at the end of this issue. Dan Abnett and Phil Winslade craft a well-told story of the retaking of areas during the push towards Berlin. I like the way it plays out, and I would be interested to see what some more bi-lingual readers make of of. It has some good action and some full-on art.
