Memorial Day- Lest We Forget

Today being Memorial Day, I'd like to take a few moments to honor the memory of those brave Marines who gave their lives in three successive landing operations on Mystery Island. Recently, the Federal Government has declassified the details of this operation and the true story of those events can now be told. So, lest we forget, here is the full account of our third failed attempt to take "The Island of Armored Giants!":















I do want to take a moment here to sincerely thank our fighting men and women past, present and future for the sacrifices they have made for the country they loved.

I salute you!

  2. Thanks! The first comic I ever bought was an issue of Star Spangled featuring an episode of "The War That Time Forgot." Any chance that we'll someday see a Mlle Marie stories here?

  3. Mykal: I couldn't agree more. I also think the strategic use of "camera" angles really adds a dizzying, out-of-control feeling that sells the size and unpredictability of the dinos and also the chaos of the troops confronting them.

    Anonymous: Glad you liked it. I don't typically post war comics here, but my good friend Mykal Banta could probably hook you up at his blog: "Star-Studded War Comics". You can find it on the links at the right, or go to
