War is Hell: First Flight of the Phantom Eagle #5 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: War is Hell: The First Flight of the Phantom Eagle #5, about which I write the following sentences: "The comic is titled 'War is Hell,' so it's no surprise that it shows the less-than-glamorous side of combat. But what makes it good, what makes it worth reading, is Ennis' ability to find the human situations within the absurdity, and his ability to make Kaufmann, the would-be Phantom Eagle, into a flawed but fascinating character. And then there's Chaykin, drawing biplanes and bloodshed and deeply conflicted square-jawed heroes. Who better to draw such characters against the backdrop of war?"
