Frankenstein - Air Ace

"Frankenstein - Air Ace" from Men of War vol.2 #8 (DC, 2012) by Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt and Tom Derenick
The New52's first attempt at a war comic was a dud. Instead of a headliner like Sgt. Rock, they put his grandson in the Middle East and immediately put superhumans in the skies, completely breaking the genre for no good reason. The last issue or two had some good stuff after dumping the main strips like so much ballast. Frankenstein and G.I. Robot? I'm there. It's more Weird War Tales than Men of War, but I'll take it where I can get it.

  2. Seeing as I can't draw, no, that has to be genuine.
