Book Description

In the aftermath of the FOB destruction, Captain Carl Reed and his Mustang squad lead the way for the new LRCA-R "Lurker" experimental combat teams. Focusing on small unit operations, the team trains hundreds of incoming elite soldiers at JTC-Griffin to combat and defeat President-General Adzic and his forces. As new intel emerges on Czervo activity, CPT Reed leads a critical mission to a familiar Pipeline facility to expose General Adzic's secret in America's Army #8 - Proving Grounds.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a review for #1-8 in the series. 17 Jan. 2015

The America Army series isn't something I'd come across before. I was aware of the game as a sort of online recruitment drive; in the Last Starfighter mould of things. So the comics shouldn't really have been a surprise.
Despite being a veiled recruitment magazine they aren't as "gung ho" and "Murcan" as I was expecting, the American Army has obviously put a bit of thought into the product and prevented it becoming the "cheese-fest" I was expecting.
The story telling was reasonably well paced, giving a mix of background and action in each issue while building up to the main arc point of the story.
The art work was average, but then I've rarely found a war comic where it was excellent. Just think of all those "Commando" comics you've ploughed through.
My one bug bear is the lettering. On the 7inch Kindle screen while the main speech bubbles are readable, the background plot boxes are fuzzy and faint. This may be some sort of rendering problem, but it's darn annoying. (It's not as pronounced when I read it on my laptop). The only other negative point is that it's like a straight photocopy, some graphic novels allow you to either zoom in or rotate the screen to allow you to get a better idea of the art work or flow of the action, this doesn't, so double landscape pages are shrunk into a single portrait sized one making them pretty unreadable.
These first 8 issues were free and though I enjoyed reading something new I don't know if I'll be shelling out hard cash to keep up with the later issues.
Give them a swirl though and see what you think.

Ok for a freebie but seemed to be almost a recruiting brochure.
