Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A gorgeous large-format hardcover." -  Project Fandom 

"The quality of the thick paper, and clean, clear printing of this book is top notch.  I would say that the work collected here is vital for anyone who is a fan of gritty war comics, and even if your interest in this is coming solely from being a Garth Ennis fan, do not hesitate to pick this up!  The notes, introductions, and afterword by Mr. Ennis is substantial.  You can tell that he didn’t take putting his name on this book lightly, and he actually points out how he was mildly embarrassed to have his name above such great work that he did not create." - Comics Tavern

"A valuable and exceedingly entertaining addition to your collection." - Fanboy Comics

"The level of emotion that goes into both the writing and drawing is fantastic, which is strengthened exponentially by Ennis’ intros. All composed into a beautiful binding worthy of Titan Books’ name, Garth Ennis Presents: Battle Classics is an excellent homage to some fantastic writings of late 70s Britain." - Another Castle

"Garth Ennis presents Battle Classics isn’t just a book that can entertain you, but it’s one that you can learn from." - Pop Mythology

"The quality of printing and binding is outstanding, the selected episodes are action-packed and it’s incredibly easy to become completely immersed in their outcomes." - Geek Dad 

"This tome collects some damn fine work." - Unwinnable

"A nice collection of UK war comics, if you are a comic book fan you should certainly add it to your library." - Retroist

"This is as much of a collection about war as it is about the people who fight in those wars. It was exciting and even at times tear inducing. Either story would have made a great short story in any WWII anthology, but as a graphic novel collection of comic strips, it really came to life." -  Pop Cults

"Perfect for any fan of classic war movies and stories." - Awkward Geeks

"Cam Kennedy’s artwork is incredibly detailed and rich, it puts modern comic-book artist to shame." - Retrenders

"Well-curated, well-restored, and, (most importantly) fantastic reading." - Nerd Span

"Aside from the excellent story, the look of HMS Nightshade is something to behold.  The artwork by Mike Western is incredibly well done with beautiful, black-and-white images." - Top Hat Sasquatch

"Garth Ennis did an excellent job of putting this book together and it’s going to remain high on my list of favorites from Titan." - Geek Nutz

"The art work is stunning and worth the cover price alone, but there is also something so damn engaging about old-school war comics. This thing is action-packed, morbid and inspiring. War is hell, but at least it made some pretty cool comic books." - IGN

"This is A+ content." - Comic Hype

"It is easy to see why this collection of excellent war stories was such an influence to Garth Ennis. Easily 5 star quality." - TMStash

"A great package. Easily the best of these war collections Titan’s put out yet, and it’s a stunning hardcover." - Comic Book Resources
