Great art! Most realistic depictions of tank combat in graphic form - from the showcased Stuart, to the more ubiquitous WWII Sherman, Patton, Tiger, Panther, and other Panzers. Even the uniforms and small arms are authentically portrayed. I had to do some research, but the light Stuart, when upgraded to the armor-piercing ammo later in the war, could indeed knock off a Tiger -- but it would have to be at point blank range and hit the weakest chink! Literary license allowed for the more extreme pushes of the envelope, including the episodic continuity issues (the ersatz tank at the end seems to switch rollers & treads, and altho' dismantled in one episode, comes back again ... ). If you like your war comics realistic, this is one to get.
