World War II soldiers fighting dinosaurs in a land that time forgot began in Star Spangled War Stories in 1960, and the idea has never seemed to go away. The “forgotten” war has shown up time and again in the DC universe, and even showed up in the New 52 in the short-lived GI Combat magazine.

I was really looking forward to this one, especially after seeing how Darwyn Cooke played with it in his limited series, The New Frontier. I thought I’d be getting something special.

Instead, I got a story that had absolutely brilliant art, but was only half-baked. The adventure through the prehistoric jungle actually got tedious even with the action-oriented plot and the threat of death on every page. Then … it just stops. I don’t know if the series got cancelled before the story could be resolved, or it this kind of ending was planned from the beginning. I wish I had known I was going to be left hanging.

The War That Time Forgot segment only takes up about a third to one half of the book. The remainder is devoted to an updated take on the Unknown Soldier that wasn’t much better than the preceding story. The story was dark and kind of punchy, and even tried to lift the mythos of the unknown soldier into the realm of the supernatural, but I wasn’t really that interested.

The original run of the Unknown Soldier offered a lot more character, a lot more tension. Basically, just a lot more story and adventure in general. After having that, and even experiencing the newly updated Unknown Soldier that came before this one, I wasn’t given anything really new or rewarding.

The Haunted Tank strip that ran for so long in the original incarnation of GI Combat was awesome, one of those series that I even now look back on with fondness.

Nostalgia won out and prompted me to purchase this reboot because growing up, I was a huge fan of The Haunted Tank comic. In this update, The War Time Forgot section was a tease given it's short length and cliffhanger stop. Visually it was rich but the story could have been more inventive. The Unknown Soldier reimagining had the strongest story and was well crafted overall. The original never interested me so I was pleasantly surprised. However, I wish I had never read The Haunted Tank entry. Everything about it was off. The original premise was difficult to accept but this update was all campy like the Adam West Batman television series. Jeb Stuart is rolling around in his grave.

Format: Paperback
I got this book because the idea of a war story with dinosaurs is fun and I had seen some of the painted artwork and liked it, but unfortunately out of the total 256 pages of the book, only 62 pages are the dinosaur story. The story itself is sparse, but I don't care much about that... the artwork looks great and it's dinosaurs!

I think they know most people are attracted to the dinosaur part of the book, since that's what is featured on the cover and used as the subtitle of the book, so it seems like a cynical ploy to have almost 200 pages of "filler" round the book out. The other stories just aren't that interesting, the artwork is standard, and there aren't any dinosaurs.

Still it's worth it for the dinosaurs, if you can get a used copy for cheap... or if you're really into stories about The Unknown Soldier and The Haunted Tank. Maybe other readers who like those stories will give it a higher grade.
