The first storyline of G.I. COMBAT includes an UNKNOWN SOLDIER backup story written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti with art by Dan Panosian. Check out the Unknown Soldier character design below.
"For me, the most significant aspect of The Unknown Soldier's new incarnation, was I wanted him to look like a cross between what you would see on today's battlefields and what we enjoy most from video games,” said artist Panosian. “I also wanted to give him a constant reminder of his family for his own inspiration. The three marks on his outfit represent the family he's lost. It's almost like a tattoo he's wearing. That's who he's fighting for."
