    From Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray (Jonah Hex), with interior illustrations from multi-award winning industry veteran Paul Gulacy!
    When a hidden city is discovered beneath the streets of Berlin, Hitler’s ultimate doomsday weapon – an Omega bomb designed to wipe out the human race – is accidently activated. Now, crews of specialists with state-of-the-art weapons and equipment must travel back in time to stop the bomb from going off. However, they soon discover that, rather than going back in time as intended, they’ve been sent back into the heart of Hitler’s Germany.

    Reviewer Comments:
    Palmiotti and Gray have proven there is no genre they can't write. In fact, there's almost no genre left out of this espionage-action-mystery-science-fiction-WWII-thriller.

    When, in the near future (next year) a German construction crew stumbles (literally) upon a secret underground city/fall-out shelter from WWII the pros are called in. And when the pros accidentally launch Hitler's derelict Omega Bomb, the pros call in some specialists. These guys are going to be sent back in time to stop the launch...but end up overshooting to WWII Germany!

    Fast paced and well thought out, this book makes for one cinematic read. To me, it had that vibe of a BBC sci-fi series and Quentin Tarrantino’s INGLORIOUS BASTARDS. Which means it was a lot of fun, folks! And, the legendary Paul Gulacy's art gave it just the right look and tone, bringing me back to his James Bond series in the 90s.

    This bang-up first issue gets us rolling, and does a great job of introducing us to the characters as it sets the stage for what promises to be a fantastic (in the original sense of the word) and surprising series.

    I thought it was kind of boring, and the concept doesn't interest me at all.

    I also don't think Paul Gulacy was a good choice for the project, not that he's not a good artist, but Radical books all have a certain visual feel. Epic, I suppose you'd call it. Paul Gulacy's work is much more cartoony. The coloring also looked like flat digital coloring, and I thought Radical only published painted books.
