Men of War #1

September 16, 2011 1:12 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

I don’t know what this is. I don’t know if this is an old comic series making a return, or a brand new one. I don’t know if these characters have ever been seen before. Unlike all the other New 52 comics I’ve read so far, I’m completely unfamiliar with everything about Men of War.

That said, what’s here is pretty compelling, if you like military-based comics. You get a little backstory on a couple soldiers, lots of military talk, and a pretty cool night-time airdrop operation. Unfortunately, this isn’t really my “thing”. I don’t want to discourage others from checking it out if it sounds interesting to them, because it really is well-done.

The one thing that might keep me interested is the very limited “superhero” element to the story so far. The team encounters some sort of superbeing that flies extremely fast in a big red blur, and can smash stuff apart without injury. Sounds like Superman to me, although I don’t think it would make sense for him to be in this. Maybe it’s Captain Atom? Or somebody new, or someone I haven’t thought of yet. That mystery is basically the only thing that makes me want to read the next one.

Verdict: Seems great, but it’s not for me.
