SYNOPSIS: On the 5th of June 1944 thousands of men parachuted into Northern France to pave the way for OPERATION OVERLORD, the invasion of France by the Allied forces in the largest amphibian assault ever attempted. The first of four stories telling of the heroism of these men, this issue recounts the fight to take the town of SAINTE-MÉRE-ÉGLISE, a strategic staging point for the men soon to be landing at the section of the French Coast codenamed UTAH Beach.
STORY: I personally am not a huge fan of historical comics. But the way this book is written pulls you in with the character development and makes you want to follow the characters. As with war there are casualties and they do not shy away from that in this book some deaths are heroic and some are just bad luck, but it really makes you feel like your on the frontlines with these soldiers.
ART: The art in this book is quite good the pencils and ink really build the war-torn world. The colors bring the characters to life. My only gripe with the art is i wish it was a bit more gritty and dark to really convey the tension and desperation in parts.
