Suicide Squad

Take a group of desperate men. Form them into a team, a squad. Place them in an impossible situation. The men are trapped there by an overpowering industrial complex that deprives them of their freedom and at the same time creates and orchestrates their reasons to fight.
 The enemy is highly skilled, overwhelmingly cunning, and undoubtedly evil. 
Not all will survive and all lessons will be harsh and not always understood at the time of delivery.

There will be gun play.
There will be explosions.
There will be sacrifice.
Sadly, there will be no Margot Robbie...

Have shorts will hide.

They teach this in the British armed forces to this day you know. However now there is a difference. In the past you had to rely on gall and phlegm. Gall and phlegm made empire! Now you can take all the hi-tech background absorbing combat pre-resolved uniforms but they won't hold up against a good pair of khaki shorts worn by a staff sergeant on the run. This man, Dougal, can hide behind this pile of rubble all day and all night and not get discovered.  This is one of reasons why the British won the war and the other allies proved again they were just mere "hanger oners". Sorry Yanks. The moment  you can demonstrate that you can participate in a major conflict in a pair of shorts  you earn the right to enter the pantheon of manly nations.

Stuka Sunday!

Just when you think you are the high flyer someone else has to come diving down on your parade. Stuka Sunday is never caught out by a confused or mixed metaphor and flys on regardless.

Like a Sherman but not a Sherman.

When is a Sherman Tank not a Sherman Tank? Most times a Sherman is a Sherman, but this time things appear to be different. The old  adage of "if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck means it must be a ...." might not apply in this situation. Sure it looks like Sherman Tank but there doesn't appear to be enough of it. If anything it appears to be a bogey short of a full tread.

What's better than a Sunderland?

Two Sunderlands! A magnificent answer to  seemingly simple yet almost impossible question. Sunderland's are not often portrayed outside of their solitary occupation. So to see two in the same place is very rare.

Stuka Sunday!

Screaming. Peeling. Reeling What fun it is on Stuka Sunday! 
Mind you the guy facing the tail must be on some serious pharmaceuticals if this is his daytime job.

The 10 year anniversary of my comic blog is coming up soon! To date over 600 posts (there'd be more if I was consistent) and hundreds of thousands of page views, keeps on flying! I like to explore and throw context to the wind for those great titles from Fleetway Publishing such as War Picture Library, Air Ace Picture Library, Battle Picture Library, and War at Sea Picture Library.

Stuka Sunday!

Even Stuka Sunday! needs a friend some Sundays. Flying sure can be lonely sometimes. But sometimes even enemies can be friends. Stuka Sunday! forever diving downwards with friends and enemies.
Who says Stuka Sunday! is not about being nice?

P's. Pocketwarcomics 10 year anniversary is coming up soon!

Disney owns your dreams.

The Spitfire in the foreground looks like Disney's version of Tigger. Surely just a coincidence. If, however, the Disney Corporation doesn't deem it to be a random event there could be danger  ahead. The consequences are too frightening to contemplate, but let's attempt the unthinkable anyway. 
If Spitfires are Tiggers then they no longer belong to Supermarine they belong to Disney. Tiger tanks will no longer be allowed to be referred to as such, as Tiger is too close to Tigger. It wouldn't be long, as a brand protection strategy, that Tiger tanks would no longer belong to Henschel they would belong to Disney. After that it wouldn't take long for the corporate copyright lawyers realise that there is no copyright on World War Two...soon after that World War Two will belong to Disney.
