What a lot of folks never read about, with regards to the second world war, is that the Allies solicited help from every group they could. This included the organized mob, who had lots of ties to their homelands. World War Mob #1 explores this through the eyes of five men from different families who find themselves under orders to do the unthinkable.
The first few pages are a black and grey flashback of how life was for these men as children. The only exception to this monochromatic color scheme is when blood is shown. The red in these frames is stark in contrast and emphasizes the violence and desperation of their early years, where survival was more important than anything else. Jump forward to World War II and we see that same violence in full color as our Mafioso protagonists are shown fighting Nazis.
