As I've stated repeatedly in this blog, I can't afford to buy many comics these days. And when I do shell out for something, it's been mostly reprint volumes of older material. Well, add another one to the "must buy" list:
SHOWCASE PRESENTS: THE WAR THAT TIME FORGOT VOL. 1 TP
Written by Robert Kanigher
Art and cover by Ross Andru & Mike Esposito
Over 500 pages of classic adventures are included in this value-priced volume collecting one of the most unusual series ever from DC Comics! On an unnamed, uncharted Pacific island, dinosaurs continued to thrive while World War II raged across the globe. It's there that members of the U.S. Military found themselves armed only with standard-issue weapons against the deadliest predators ever to roam the Earth!
Advance-solicited; on sale May 2 o 560 pg, B&W, $16.99 US
Soldiers vs dinosaurs! The original kid-appeal "high concept!" Didn't every kid have green army men and plastic dinos? Pure, friggin' genius. And considering how much I've been enjoying the SHOWCASE PRESENTS: Haunted Tank and Unknown Soldier volumes, I'll definitely scrape up seventeen bucks for this one, somehow.
(It'll be cheaper through Amazon, I bet).
