Originally published in 2006. During a routine patrol in the midst of WWII, an armoured column is ambushed! But be warned, this isn't the war you think you know!

Hope you don't mind but I shared this thread on the new Weird War group on Facebook ;) They are trying to do a neutral group, where fans of different rulesets can talk about the genre itself without getting into fights.

I seem to recall a book series where a modern day ship with soldiers and sailors from various nations popping up in '42 or so. Does anyone know the name of the series, or if I'm even correct?  ;D

Glad to help. The 3 last books - Stalin's Hammer - are also good reads but I think they are only available in ebook versions. And they are post-WW2.

If you're out of the loop, Uber series 2 came out this month. Covering the invasion of the United States by the Nazi supermen.

The author's note at the end implies that this should be the end of the series following this arc. However if you've ever read Cross +100, there was mention of possibly releasing a limited series set 100 years following the end of the comic (with the caveat, "if there's anything left by then") - which has me especially pleased. :)

Just read an odd and unsettling Graphic novel published by Dark Horse.

It was called Aleister & Adolf, and told a story regarding the 'Propaganda/Magick' War between Crowley and the Third Reich.

I'm not sure if I completely enjoyed it, but it was compelling, and apparently based on some real history to form it's narrative.

Supervike - your mention of the Dark Horse graphic novel put me in mind of a novel by Jake Arnott, 'House Of Rumour'. It's in part concerned with Rudolph Hess's flight to Scotland in 1941 & whether it was provoked by the actions of occultists (including Crowley, who features in the novel) influencing him through the astrological readings he (seemed to) give weight to.
 It's a pretty good novel, (though don't expect pulp levels of action, it's more of a thoughtful read) which I certainly enjoyed, here's the inside cover blurb: 

"Larry Zagorski spins wild tales of fantasy worlds for pulp magazines. But as the Second World War hangs in the balance, the lines between imagination and reality are starting to blur.

In London, spymasters enlist occultists in the war of propaganda. In Southern California, a charismatic rocket scientist summons dark forces and an SF writer founds a new religion. In Munich, Nazis consult astrologists as they plot peace with the West and dominion over the East. And a conspiracy is born that will ripple through the decades to come.

The truth, it seems, is stranger than anything Larry could invent. But when he looks back on the 20th century, the past is as uncertain as the future. Just where does truth end and illusion begin?"

That's actually very similar to the plot in this comic book.

It also has the Hess capture as a plot point.

I will check out the Zagorski one, the subject matter is creepy....having it's feet both in real and weird.
