Big-ish press release from IDW but it boils down to this…
“Over six issues, fans will be treated to the action-packed, intrigue-soaked adventures of Staff Sergeant Tommy “Irish” Flynn, a soldier in the South Pacific in 1943 who’s about to uncover a prehistoric mystery while taking on an army of diabolical Nazis!”
