Starring DC war heroes Johnny Cloud, Captain Storm, Gunner and Sarge, this volume features stories in which The Losers stop a German attack using a tactic found in a comic book, German and American athletes who faced each other at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin meet again on the field of combat, and much more! Don't miss this amazing collection of tales from OUR FIGHTING FORCES #151-162, and featuring a foreword by best-selling author Neil Gaiman (THE SANDMAN).
They've got nothing to lose!
In the '70s, legendary comics creator Jack Kirby (X-Men, Fantastic Four, Hulk) shocked the comics industry when he left Marvel Comics to go over to the competition. What Kirby brought to DC Comics was exciting new characters and explosive new worlds. And for the first time, he was writing, illustrating and editing his new creations.
Following the success of the Fourth World series of books, and titles such as THE DEMON and KAMANDI, Kirby also delved into established creations -- revitalizing them and making them his own. Captain Storm, Johnny Cloud, and Gunner & Sarge all served different branches of the armed forces, and each suffered failures in their military careers. But together they formed the Special Forces unit dubbed The Losers -- and together they would win... or die trying.
Kirby's return to war comics was unlike anything else out there, and ow his complete 12-issue Losers saga (from OUR FIGHTING FORCES) is collected here for the first time in hardcover, with an introduction by bestselling author Neil Gaiman.
