STAR_SPANGLED_WAR_STORIES_#1

Admit it, if you hear title “Star Spangled War Stories featuring G.I. Zombie,” you’re probably going to wince a little bit.  Especially given the track record DC’s had trying to push war books in the “New 52.”  Still, the writing team is Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, who usually warrant a look and you’ve got […]
