Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "There's plenty of battlefield chaos, to be sure, but the tales are clearly a product of meticulous research and loaded with insights into the monotony and terror of fighting in a war." ― Booklist
Take aim alongside a thin line of Union sharpshooters at Gettysburg. Ride with John Mosby, the South's greatest raider, on a daring foray inside Union lines. Dodge grapeshot and cannonballs on a journey down the Mississippi aboard the Union Ram Fleet. These ten gripping tales from both sides of the conflict recapture the excitement, history, and tragedy of the American Civil War. In addition to fictional stories set within historical events, this illustrated anthology includes excerpts from biographies and eyewitness accounts, a timeline, and several maps. Fact pages following each story provide fascinating details.
Formerly available only in an extremely limited edition, Civil War Adventure combines the talents of Eisner-nominated author Chuck Dixon, the writer of such popular series as Batman and Green Arrow, and artist Gary Kwapisz, best known for his illustrations for Marvel Comics' The Savage Sword of Conan.
"This Civil War graphic novel mixes history, storytelling, and fantastic artwork to create stories of everyday people in America. Using historical accounts, detailed research, maps, timelines, and fact pages, Chuck Dixon creates stories that show how the war affected not just the Generals and Lieutenants but fathers and sons, families and friends. Overall this will serve as an excellent introduction to the civil war." — 142media
