Our modern wars have been well covered in comics, as with the excellent WAR FIX by writer David Axe and artist Steve Olexa.

There is always time for humor:

Some things cannot be explained.


  1. Quite a few veterans of World War II (and the Holocaust) in Hogan’s Heroes.'s_Heroes#Jewish_actors

    Also, thanks to Sgt. George Baker.

  2. Thanks for this post, Heidi.

    I’m still hoping one of my author friends gets to do her WWI comic sometime in the next few years. Even with centennials rushing toward us and just one (still?) known veteran remaining, WWI has been a tough sell.

  4. Another great World War II graphic novel came out this week called Two Generals by Scott Chantler, about his grandfather’s Canadian infantry unit. Great read, great art, and great production values. This would make more top ten lists of the year if people didn’t start putting out their top ten lists of the year in late October / early November.
