In the 1960s, DC Comics published The War That Time Forgot, a wacky storyline about soldiers battling dinosaurs on a mysterious Pacific island during World War II. This spring, DC is updating this prehistoric anarchy in the new military anthology G.I. Combat, and we have an exclusive sneak peek.
Here's a first look at Ariel Olivetti's variant cover for G.I. Combat #1. As you can see, discharging firearms into a Tyrannosaurus' mouth won't placate the reptile one bit. This comic hits stands on May 2, and here's the issue synopsis:
