This was announced right before San Diego, but I missed it the first time around — Transfuzion announced in July that they’re bringing Don Lomax’s Vietnam Journal back into print, with volume one due in October. Lomax is a Vietnam vet who also worked on Marvel’s The ‘Nam series.
The comic, originally published by Apple Comics back in the late 1980s, received a lot of critical praise at the time; in a guest post for Comics Should Be Good a few years ago, The Other Side and Scalped writer Jason Aaron called it “one of the most gritty and brutally honest war stories ever published.” And Newsarama published a great interview with Lomax about his work on the book back in 2003.
Transfuzion will release the volumes bi-monthly, followed by collections of three miniseries by Lomax — Tet ’68, Bloodbath at Khe Sanh and High Shining Brass. The first issue of the comic is available for free via myebook.com.
