Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Last Day in Vietnam is Will Eisner's memoir of stories about soldiers who are engaged not only in the daily hostilities of war but also in larger, more personal combat. During Eisner's years in the military, and particularly during the many field trips he made for P.S. Magazine, he observed camp life at close range. Some of the stories in this novel are comical, some heart-rending, some frightening, yet all display the incredible insight into humanity characteristic of Eisner's entire oeuvre. The first edition of this graphic novel features a full-color cover painted by the artist, with a matte and spot-gloss finish, interior cover flaps, and special sepia-colored ink printed on high-quality antique paper.

Each tale is told with Eisner's trademark brevity. The entire book can be read in less than half an hour. This leads to some disappointment as each of these too-brief stories ends. Some tales are a bit too comic-bookish for my taste -- a few too many situations are resolved by a characters facing out at the reader with a "so, what are you gonna do?" quizzical gesture. One story, about a soldir who loves killing, ends with a too-easy comic reversal.
But as with all of Eisner's work, the images and stories stay with you long after you put the book down.While this is not my favorite Eisner work (check out the "Contract with God" trilogy) it is good stuff and worth a look.
While the stories all contain a poignant moment or two (mostly along the variety of 'war is hell') the narrative is somewhat constrained by Eisner's signature artistic style - a euphoric, cartoony aesthetic - that seems somewhat out of place in constrast to the bleak message of the stories. That being said, fans of Eisner's work along with those who appreciate War comics will find some enjoyment from this title.
