Examining how stories of conflict have been told in comics down the years, this book covers everything from EC Comics' depictions of the US Civil War to Joe Sacco's reportage on modern asymmetric conflicts. Comics depicting the First and Second World Wars are put in context, with their propaganda-driven plotlines and enemy-bashing superheroes. But away from these major conflicts, War Comics also covers rebellious, anti-war underground comix, investigative journalism, outright slambang action adventure and more thoughtful mainstream developments such as the WWI tale Charley's War. War Comics: A Graphic History exposes this fascinating field in all its many forms.
