Description
From a trickle in the 1930s to a flood in World War II, comics about war have become a staple genre of the medium, where bloody death and heroic action are not only the realm of superheroes. The editor of Comics International and founder of the long-running and prestigious Eagle Awards, Mike Conroy presents this graphic tour of war comics as a chronology of war itself, in sections on historical conflicts, the American Revolution and Civil War, World War I, World War II, Britain in war, Korea and Vietnam, and modern conflicts around the world. Each two-page spread touches on a single subject, like Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert's Sgt. Rock or the racist stereotypes of "Japanazi" bad guys, with a short discussion by Conroy and several captioned comic book covers, inner pages, or single panels of art.
