Will G.I. Combat Replace Men Of War In My Heart In The New New 52?

Will G.I. Combat Replace Men Of War In My Heart In The New New 52?I've been quite open about saying that Men Of War was one of my favourites of the New 52, even though it was not much loved. I wasn't blown away by the real war back up strips, but the soldiers dealing with the after effects of superhero war was, I thought, stellar. Well, Ivan Brandon had walked off issue six which didn't exactly fill me with confidence, and now DC have dropped the book.

Thematically replacing it, it seems, is G.I. Combat by JT Krul and Ariel Olivetti which is reviving The War That Time Forgot, a sixties series showing American soldiers marooned on an island populated with dinosaurs. DC revived it again four years ago, but this may be a more permanent home. It will also have backup strips, The Unknown Soldier by  Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti and Dan Panosian, and The Haunted Tank by John Arcudi and Scott Kolins.

Okay, okay. I'll give it an issue.
