THE OTHER SIDE SPECIAL EDITION is a hardcover collection of the Eisner-Award Nominated miniseries that started it all for writer JASON AARON (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Scalped)! With amazingly visceral artwork from CAMERON STEWART (MOTOR CRUSH, Batgirl) and vivid colors from DAVE McCAIG
(American Vampire), THE OTHER SIDE tells an unforgettable Vietnam war story from the point-of-view of two young soldiers on both sides of the conflict.
Private Bill Everette is a US
Marine. His opposite number, Vo Binh is a fighter for the People’s Army of
Vietnam. These two young men have never met. They are not even aware of each other’s existence. And yet, in the battle-scared country of Vietnam,
fighting a war that no sane mind can fully comprehend, their destinies are on a deadly collision course.
SIDE SPECIAL EDITION will not only showcase this powerful war story but also include loads of extra materials straight from the files of both writer and artist. Cameron Stewart was so committed to this project that he travelled to
Vietnam to do preliminary research and this collection will feature pictures,
drawings and journal entries from that trip.
This definitive collection is an important milestone in the burgeoning careers of two of the most significant creators of modern comics and it’s not to be missed! Collects THE OTHER

Vietnam War-based comic collection – hard-hitting stuff Telling both sides of the conflict from the view of reluctant soldiers, this collection does not hold back on the awful truth of war waged by those who do not understand its causes or reason. Soldiers die apparently from illness, war and mishaps and the senselessness of war is the main topic, told by the average grunt. Not an easy collection, it is important for those who were not around for the Vietnam War (and most other similar conflicts) to see what a waste of time, money, resources and, of course, humanity war can be. Reminiscent of Marvel's “The 'Nam” series.
