The other thing James Robinson does better than anyone is utilize the obscure superheroes of yesteryear. The centerpiece of this issue is a flashback in which we see The Kid Commandos (created by Roy Thomas for his own 1970s' Invaders book) take on their mentors in a battle over the morality of The Invaders plan to stop the fighting in The Pacific by creating a tidal wave that will hurt innocent civilians as well as the Japanese navy!
I may dote on Robinson's writing, but the artwork of Mark Laming proves the equal of Robinson's script. Lanning's style emulates the Marvel Comics of old, with figures aiming their attacks at the reader in the grand Jack Kirby tradition. The final product is an impressive fusion of great writing and amazing artwork.
