I seem to have a knack for getting roped into writing military comics. First there was Untold Stories from Iraq and Afghanistan, for which I volunteered because of my friends off fighting the war. I also pushed to do a project on the Korean War because my work in elder care put me in regular contact with veterans from that conflict whose stories risked being forgotten and lost. And now this.
Around this time last year I was asked by the family of the late Maj. Gen. David Sawyer to transform his journals from Operation: Desert Shield/Desert Storm into a graphic novel. Now the script is finished, and I've reunited with some of the team from the Korean War project - Dan Monroe, Eric White, and Tom Orzechowski (who many of us know also happened to work on my favorite Claremont/Cockrum X-books!)- to bring the script to life.
Not bad for an army reject.
Of course, once the pages are drawn, colored, and lettered, we've got to get the book printed and distributed somehow...https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tige ... 287#/story
