The fact is...

Get enough facts together and the facts become clearer. The subtractive quality of facts are not reliant on the quality of facts. However when stepping away from facts, opinions may begin to take their place. Are counterfactuals facts?

The evil twin!

You know a story is beyond good when it uses the "it wasn't me/him/her it was my/his/her evil twin" as a plot twist. Normally people go as far to pull this one out after an afternoon of drinking soon after they move onto the rums. But to pull out the evil twin is also a pro-Nazi flying spy is really hitting a new found peak usually found in the midst of the inevitable tequila or mescal shots.
Irresponsible? Perhaps.

Duh! You think so?

It could be just that Nazis are not very good team players. Sure there are bullets coming in through the cabin. Sure someone has to drive the plane around the sky. Sure someone else has to travel around backwards all the time. But, can't these two realise they're on the same team - despite how sick and twisted the ideology that brought them together? And here's the problem, teamwork or a lack of it tends to be self serving. It doesn't necessarily allow team members to look beyond the task at hand. So it's great for getting things done but not necessarily good at differentiating between right and wrong. So possibly it might be a good thing to shoot at sky Nazis, so that they might begin to question themselves. That can only be a good idea.

Ain't nothing like a good plan.

Like good music a good plan is a thing of beauty. Just as a good inky panel full of shadows and strangled light is a beautiful sight. No denying the urgency. No denying the intent as words and image combine faultlessly. At this moment everything is going to work as planned. Without giving too much away things do go wrong after this planning session. But... it's more dramatic that way.

The Future is Here Now.

Perhaps due to being idealologically irreprehensible and and in possession of questionable military tactical sense, these crack troops appear hell bent on getting themselves killed.
I suppose it makes the post war reunions all that much more intimate and saves on the number of invitations that need to be sent around. See what happens when you have one eye on the future?

Meanwhile in Norway...

Forgetting Norwegians is never going to be a good idea and the energy devoted to such endeavours is easily misplaced and should be kept to a minimum. Hiding in the hold is not going to be helpful either. Looking for help, though admirable, is just an excuse.

No stranger to contempt.

Better off dead if the other chaps believe you are a shirker. The world would be a better off place if everyone did their bit. But no, some fellows just won't take a bullet for the team. Yet despite protestations from all sides emotions prove to be more derisive than decisive.

Hidin' in a 'ole

There comes a time in every person's life where hole hiding becomes a priority. Forget about standing tall, taking it on the chin and all other cultural short hand comments for bravado. It can be dangerous out there. Standing up and up being counted is really not worth the effort, when you can just as easily be tabulated whether you are prone or supine. To whose advantage is it really, the counted or the counter?

When vriends are hard to find.

Swine or no swine, trusting a man with a groomed beard with a gun and who can't distinguish the the letter f from the letter v is always going to be a mistake.
The beard manages to pronounce every other consonant correctly and becomes agitated when questioned. Is he annoyed because he has been delayed in out Hipstering his Hipster friends (vriends) by taking his  bakelite headset and shortwave radio on the bus?
Despite his faults he certainly knows how to wear a cravat correctly and at least should be vanked vor not succumbing to vashion vearing as a poorly vormed noose.

For the love of cross hatching.

 This is but one panel. The night sky is cross hatched. Some of the clouds are cross hatched. Even the Lancaster's panels are cross hatched. The ink work is sublime. This is a thing of beauty.
