Comics: Johnny Red #6 Review

Johnny Red #6

Writer: Garth Ennis

Artist: Keith Burns

Colorist: Jason Wordie


Synopsis: Against orders, Johnny has set out to discover the whereabouts of his beloved Falcon Squadron – sent off on a top secret mission but now vanished. What he discovers is utterly shocking and could change the course of the Second World War!!!

Review:  Garth and Keith continue to create a story that keeps the original Johnny Red and add some new heart to the series.  This edition of Johnny Red puts our heroes behind enemy lines to discover that the war could be taking a dramatic turn for the worse.  The story line focuses on Johnny and the group stranded in Nazi territory discovering that have documents containing the surrendering of the Soviets to the Nazis.  Now their mission has become to keep the documents and not let them get in the hands of the Nazis forcing the surrender of the Soviets.  With little time on their hands Red and the gang have to find and repair a plane to get out of danger.


Story Review:  Garth Ennis has done a great job with series making each issue a thrill from first to last page.  Issue #6 doesn’t disappoint story arc wise.  Although there isn’t a lot of action in this issue, Garth uses this opportunity to explore the bigger issue of why Johnny is continuing to fight. 


Art.  Keith Burns artwork is a modern classic in this series.  Burns uses a style of that incorporates the classic feel of the time period of World War II.  This issue has a great flow to the story making it easy to follow along through the issue.  Burns does a great job of putting as much as he can into each panel but not overcrowding the pages. 


Overall:  This issue created more depth for this series for readers to get invested in.  Garth and Keith take a step back from the action of this series to allow the team to tackle.  Issue 6 has been my favorite of the series so far.
