  1. Well coming back from one week in Normandy where I vidited many WWII hot spots I think I’d really love that book! Also the art is wonderful!

  2. One normally associates Stalingrad with snipers, not Leningrad. I don’t think the Nazis ever made it into Leningrad, but the city was effectively blockaded. The Finns as co-belligerents blocked the north side of the city but did not push to enter. Barbarossa, the German invasion of Russia, was in the summer of 1941 and I don’t think the city was relieved until the winter of 1943. That was a hard, dark time, and those people endured starvation and hardship beyond our understanding.

    I enjoy these stories of female heroes of Russia. Battalions of female snipers and female pilots. Do you know the story of ‘The Night Witches’, or the tank named ‘Fighting Girlfriend’?

    It is odd to see historical battles in comic form. Do you think this is a good medium to tell these stories?

    Happy Trails!

    1. Ah ha! And this story, although probably mostly fictional, might explain why Nazis didn’t make it in Leningrad. 😉 Impressive knowledge you got there, Icky! It does sound like you prefer hunting down ultra-accurate-to-history stories! I can’t blame you there. 😛 And nooo, I don’t think I’ve heard of those stories! Might have seen “Fighting Girlfriend” in a video game or a movie though. Sounds truly fascinating. 😮 And yes, I think any medium, including comics, is fantastic to tell these kinds of stories. 😉 There’s so much that can be achieved if done right. 😀 Thanks for reading, Icky! 😀

  3. When much younger and first getting into comics I had no interest in anything that wasn’t superhero, sci-fi or fantasy. But I’m glad to say I eventually outgrew that and opened up to these sorts of stories set in something closer to the “real world.” Granted, I didn’t find many of them, but I did really enjoy what I found. And I think you have found another story I just might enjoy. Great review, Lashaan!

    1. I too started off with superhero stuff first but that’s mostly because I “knew” they existed and that there was A LOT to discover but then I expanded into indie stuff and other publishers besides Marvel and DC. There are so many fantastic stories but you just have to dig a bit to find the really good ones! Glad to put this on your radar though. It really is worth checking out! 😀 Thanks for reading, Todd!
