Kevin linked to this New York Times profile on comics legend Joe Kubert earlier today. While the article is focused mainly on Kubert’s original art being sold, it also mentions a new Kubert project coming next May — Dong Xoai, Vietnam 1965.
What’s interesting is how this is being published. The Times said it is a Vertigo book, but actually it’ll be published by “The Joe Kubert Library,” according to all three of DC’s blogs. EDIT: This isn’t the first time the imprint has been used.
Here are some details on the project from those blogs:
DONG XOAI, VIETNAM 1965 tells the story of a team of Special Forces soldiers who were on what was to be a simple assistance and observation mission in the village of Dong Xoai that suddenly turned deadly. Written as an original graphic novel with text and illustrations, DONG XOAI, VIETNAM 1965 is based on extensive first hand information from the surviving members of the Special Forces group involved.
