  1. A poignant and wonderfully constructed review my friend – your analysis of the story is great but so is your exploration of the art, it really gave me a sense of how important it is to conveying the feel and tone of the narrative.

    I like a lot of Venditti’s work and I’m a big World War II history buff but haven’t really read any war comics like this – I’ll have to check it out!

    1. Thank you, good sir. I definitely think the artwork and the creative team decision to minimize the amount of dialogue helps to convey the story with all the intended emotions that were meant to come with it.

      Then you surely have to pick this re-release out then! You usually can’t go wrong with Vertigo comics hahah

  2. Wow – this sounds like an intense way to experience a WWII story. I think that graphic novels are uniquely able to cover this highly traumatic ground in a way that is so sensory and devastating.

    Amazing review! I just finished reading my own traumatising WWII era story, but when I’m ready for another I will definitely be reaching for this. It sounds like an amazing piece of work.

    1. Thanks, Lydia! Yep. It’s really nice to see the medium being used artistically to explore such a story. There are plenty of WWII graphic novels that are worth checking out though. Like Maus. While it’s not real characters, its message is poignant.

  3. Amazing review! 😊 This book sounds amazing, you know I rarely read graphic novels but it sounds like the drawings are such an important part of it! It’s hard to imagine when you only read black letters on white pages! 😮

    1. Thank you so much, Caroline! Oh yes. Most of the time, authors let your imagination be dictated by their writing, and it can quite powerful, but you know what the say, a picture is worth a thousand words! And when done right, it can move you just as well as black letters on white pages! 😜
