Greg Pak’s “War Machine” wins ComicCritique.com’s Maximum Force Award


The twelve issue “War Machine” series written by Greg Pak with art by Leonardo Manco, Allan Jefferson, Wellinton Alves, Mahmud Asrar, and R.B. Silva, has nabbed the coveted Maximum Force Award from ComicCritique.com. Here’s an excerpt:

A milestone of story that gets to make its point and toughness that works to show its substance.
