Golden Age comic book legend Sam Glanzman draws upon his own World War II experiences in this outstanding graphic novel. Hailed by Eisner Award-winning Astro City author Kurt Busiek as “one of the most honest, dedicated and engaging cartoonists in comics history,” Glanzman wrote and illustrated this intimate account of his life aboard a Navy destroyer, the USS Stevens. As legendary X-Men scribe Chris Claremont noted, this “isn’t a story of make-believe super-beings; these are real people, with real fears, being transformed by events and circumstances into men of courage.” Back in print for the first time in more than twenty-five years, this new collection unites both A Sailor’s Story and its sequel, A Sailor’s Story: Winds, Dreams, and Dragons, plus a never-before-seen ten-page story of the USS Stevens, Even Dead Birds Have Wings.
Soft cover. 163 pages. Book measures approximately 8.25 inches in length by 11 inches in height.
