A new issue of Garth Ennis’ highly acclaimed series, War Stories #14, arrived in comic shops this week. The second chapter of “Tokyo Club” continues the harrowing tale of pilots flying from Iwo Jima for bombing runs and the horror they faced regularly for the war effort. Ennis is a master at digging beneath the surface of a story and delivering the human drama in a way that is unrivaled in comics. Anyone with even a passing interest in the horror of war stories should be reading these volumes.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: As the aerial bombardment of Japan steps up a notch, disaster beckons when the escort pilots flying from Iwo Jima find themselves with more than just the enemy to contend with. Life on the remote island gets better by degrees, but an unexpected guest at dinner brings our heroes face to face with the realities of the war they’re fighting. Most frustrating of all, no matter how much punishment their homeland takes, the Japanese will not give up- resorting to desperate measures to oppose the American squadrons. Part two of the three part The Tokyo Club, by Garth Ennis and Tomas Aira. Available with Regular & Wraparound Covers by Tomas Aria, and Good Girl Nose Art & Battle Damage Retailer Incentive Covers by Matt Martin.
