This review is from: Charleys War (Vol. 9) - Death From Above (Hardcover)
The entire series is great both as an illustrated history and a realistic portrayal of the realities of war (albeit and old one), Be aware that it is from a weekly boys comic from long before the concept of Graphic Novel was conceived. It show its origins: the individual episodes are bite-sized (3 pages), there is invariably a cliff-hanger and some of the characters at first may seem overdone caricatures (mostly less so as they recur in the series, although I don't think Charley's brother-in-law is every given a redeeming feature). I was familiar with its pedigree and consider it all the more remarkable give the original forum in which it appeared. Oh, and the artwork is fabulous.
