The Collection - DC: The New Frontier
Silver Age reimagining
Welcome to The New Frontier from DC Comics - a newer addition to my collection.
Welcome to the DC Universe in 1950s America -- a land of promise and paranoia, of glittering cities and segregated slums, of dizzying scientific progress and simmering Cold War conflict. A land without the Justice League--Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. Or so it seems.

Jumping straight into the action during the closing days of World War II, there are no superheroes to be seen. That isn't too easy that this story is by no means less fantastic!
This story features an elite army unit - The Losers - and they are on a rescue mission. It's not a happy story, but it sweetens the tone well with some battles and sacrifices. I also enjoyed the art, with some excellent battle scenes and fantastic visuals.
