Riassunto: The epic graphic novel collecting the incredible mini-series of the early days of the United States in the Second World War. Days of Darkness covers the darkest days of World War II, when the United States went from the tragedy of Pearll Harbor to the triumph at Midway. Covering in detail the attack of the US Naval base and the devastation of the fleet in Hawaii, the action moves to the evacuation of the Philippines, the horror of the Death March of Bataan, and to the dramatic Battle fo Midway which stopped the Japanese juggernaut in the Pacific. Creator Wayne Vansant, best known for his exacting detail on the long running popular series, The ?Nam, chronicles the participation of the Cahill family as their lives are irrevocably changed forever as their world is plunged into war. Reviews: ?Heavy on authenticity, compellingly written and beautifully drawn.?- Comics Buyers Guide ??conveying to today?s fans what life was life, both at war and at home during this turbulent era.?- Comic Shop News. ?Informative and historical, all wrapped up in an entertaining package of fact blended with fiction.?- Joe Pruett, writer of X-Men and Domino.
L'autore: WAYNE VANSANT was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1949. He served in the US Navy during the Vietnam War, and graduated from the Atlanta College of Art in 1975. His first comic work appeared in Marvel's Savage Tales, and was the principle artist for The 'Nam for more than fifty issues. He wrote and illustrated Days of Darkness for Apple Comics, telling the story of the early days of the war in the Pacific in the early 90's. One of the most acclaimed historical comic artists, Wayne has created and illustrated comics from Marvel, Eclipse, Penguin, Caliber, Dark Horse and others. He contributed to The New Two-Fisted Tales and Real War Stories and also launched a series of non-fiction, military history comics called the Heritage Collection, which covered the Civil War and World War II. Some of the war comics from Wayne include Shiloh, The Vietnam War: A Graphic History, Semper Fi (Tales of the Marine Corps), and Witches' Caldron, the incredible story of the Cherkassy Pocket. Lending his considerable skills, Wayne has also illustrated fictional works set in war settings such as Battron, a tale of a French Foreign Legionnaire and Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage for Penguin Books. He is currently working on a project that is very close to his heart, a three-part graphic novel series called Katusha: Girl Soldier of the Great Patriotic War. In addition to Days of Darkness, also coming from Transfuzion Publishing are collections of Battron and Witches' Caldron which also collects tales of the Panzers as presented in Battle Group Peiper and Knights of the Skull.
