SLEDGEHAMMER 44 #2(W) Mike Mignola (A) Jason Latour
Outgunned and outnumbered by an army of Nazis, a group of GIs must band together and unleash the Hyperborean power of the mysterious man in the iron suit in order to make it home safely.
While I love Hellboy, BPRD and the Mignola-verse in general, I will be the first to admit that Mignola has fallen into a routine; a template for both art and story that becomes too formulaic for even the most die hard fan. Nazis, world war II, occult super science...been there done that. How to spice things up then? ROBOTS!! Robots punching those Nazi's to stop their weird occult experiments during the bloody days of WWII!!! C'mon, what more do you want?!! It's Atomic Robo done by Jason Latour by way of Will Eisner. Image the hard faced, exhausted and frightened soldiers of Eisner's war comics thrown into the dark alternate history of magic, science and PUNCHING!!! Nazi's in the face that is.
