"Oh no it looks like Cutter's bought it!" If this statement makes sense to you, you've come to the right place.

Do you know where this finger has been? Sometimes simple questions need to be given to simple people. Simple people lack sophistication. They lack intelligence. They lack flare. They lack style. Most of all they lack grooming. A simple person cannot grow a moustache let alone care for one. True some people may be able to grow facial hair but no doubt it will prove to be an abomination. It takes a proper man to grow, groom and maintain a moustache. So when the finger is being pointed and the files are on the cabinet there is only one way to show respect- even though you may not have the intelligence to understand the meaning of your own words. How the irony is lost on those standing in the shadows.
Take any War Picture Library, Battle Picture Library or Commando comic and you will always find those famous last words “arrgghhhhh” or even “donner und blitzen”.
Cowards try to prove themselves or officers interfere by trying to run battles “by the book”. The enemy is treacherous. Mysterious locations hold significant secrets. Sometimes a simple gun is the focal point of a unique karmic destiny.
There are those who are lost or left behind enemy lines where they invariably make a discovery – a hidden base, a wonder weapon or a traitor. The host of intangible struggles are often more significant such as the dark secret, the family shame, the family curse or the stigma of not being like the other chaps.
Strangely enough for stories about war and battle the killed the dead and the dying are usually absent.
There's a lot to like (and make fun of) among the dramatic titles, fantastic artwork, impossible stories, daring heroes, nasty bad guys, body building and not quite diamond rings advertisements.
