Uncle Sam, the living embodiment of the American spirit, has been awakened…but will he recognize the country he left behind? Sam has reemerged to discover his beloved nation overrun with fascists and the huddled masses he fought so hard to protect marginalized and under the iron grip of an evil regime mad with power and willing to do ANYTHING to preserve it. Even with the help of the Freedom Fighters, can the spirit of America hope to survive the titanic forces of oppression? Plus: the return of the one Nazi weapon that's faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than anything the resistance could hope to put in his way: the mighty Overman!

BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer

The battle for Earth X continues. Uncle Sam is back but not at 100% yet. With the new Freedom Fighters covering his back, we get to see the return of another great World War II character in the destructive War Wheel! And if the War Wheel is back does that mean the Blackhawks are somewhere around?! However, Adolf Hitler the 2nd gives the order to release the greatest Nazi villain ever know, OverMan! With a nice flowing story and what seems to be a natural progression, I hope that Robert Venditti's story will continue to focus in on the well established characters of the Quality Publishing Line and not lose it all to a Uncle Sam/OverMan beat down. I mean at some point it will have to happen but hopefully not at the expense of such characters as the Blue Tracer. This title is still holding a steady course.

I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
