GI Combat Action by urban-barbarian GI Combat Action by urban-barbarian
Here's a Sneak Peek at some of the art from GI Combat #3 published by DC Comics written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti.

I've mashed a bunch of panels together so as not to give away any of the story [ which, as usual, is drama heavy and action packed ].

The first issue comes out May 2nd. Keep a look out!

amidst all the hard edges and roughness, I like the girl at the bottom right-hand corner :)

I agree with that Simonson comparison (high praise, as he is my all-time favorite artist).

This is a very cool way to tease an upcoming book. Great work!

I met him at Comicon a few years ago. Really the only artist I ever met that I went full-retarded over. I wanted to say something cool and insightful, but all I could do was giggle and say "um... I like Thor..."

They're from a made up place like Gotham but based on Muslim terrorists, yes.

I think the key to a better world lies in removing ignorance, not people.

and do u think that removing ignorance can take place by showing arabs and muslims in all medias as terrorists? Films, tv, comics, novels, newspapers, all medias have brainwashed the whole world to see those muslims as only terrifying enemies don't u agree? while we have also a lot of acts of terrorism from Christians, Jewish...etc don't u agree? or did i get u wrong by removing ignorance?

I think when you must feel I'm ignorant when you wrote "Then I also hope that we have an american hero who will terminate them all :D those arabs need to be just eliminated from our planet don't u feel so? :P "... You pretended to hate Muslims so you could bait a hateful reply from me. I don't appreciate that.

For the record, this comic book, which you clearly haven't read, also makes sure to portray one of the leading hero characters as Muslim. Which is very important to me. I don't like the idea of portraying a nationality or religion as "evil".

I'm not sure if you're familiar with "The 99". I helped create that series.

Also, I'm half German. You'll notice that Germans/Nazis are always portrayed as villains. But I think the comic book reading population doesn't automatically assume that if you're German you're evil. I'm also half Armenian. My family's heritage has been on both sides of attempted holocausts/genocides.

I'm not ignorant of either.

I do believe that people who don't think for themselves and that blindly follow a herd mentality can be very dangerous. That includes national pride and religious beliefs. Again, I think the key to a better world lies in removing ignorance, not people.

First it wasn't like i wanted to bait a hateful reply from you, actually i respect u more than that as i consider u one of my idols and i am really sorry if it seemed like that, my bad but it really drove me mad seeing u taking the same path and portraying muslims as terrorists (u would understand if u have an idol and suddenly u get shocked from something he did) and so i said what i said as a bad joke.
Also it's clear that i don't know much about u, didn't know u were half german and yes i know germans are portrayed as villains most of the time. also didn't know that u worked on the 99 too...that's so cool how did those ppl reach u :D
so do u follow a religion? believe in God? most of the germans i met in my life believe that religions were the cause of all wars and don't believe in God. i guess that was because of how the world hated them before. But i won't blame religions for the acts of people, as u said the key lies in removing ignorance, very well said sir

Thanks Yousef. I could tell where you were going. I would rather you just come out say what you have just said. I agree with you concerning stereotypes.

I'm happy that DC Comics has made sure to portray both good and bad Muslims in their comic book. You don't see that very often. Such is usually not the case in a WW2 Captain America comic book or any comic book that deals with WW2. Luckily, I think people in general realize that terrorists are extremists and not the norm.

Concerning the 99, I was contacted by my old editor, Fabian Nicieza, on behalf of The 99 creator to design all the original characters. Being half German and half Armenian I liked the idea of working on a comic book project that sought to tear down nationality and racial boundaries.

Thank you for taking an interest in such matters. Most people would rather look the other way. Have a great day!
