The soldiers knew the score: for all the halos of glory they were being heaped with in the press, they were nothing more than anonymous, interchangeable items in the limitless inventory of the war. But for the soldiers who had to go into them, the combat zones were proving to be more horrible than their darkest imaginings. I’m not the best fit for superheroes, and I know that — especially in a continuity driven industry. In other words, there was no compelling military logic behind it; it was just an arbitrary way of marking time while the buildup for the real invasion went on. The Red Army would have to hang on to its positions in Russia, the Americans would go on inching their way into the Japanese empire, and the Allies everywhere would commit their forces to campaigns designed only to keep the Axis from expanding further. John, I realized while researching for this interview that this isn’t your first time at Marvel doing a title with the adjective “Savage” in it; early in your career you did stories for Savage Tales and Savage Sword of Conan . Is there any specialness from those gigs you’re carrying over here, with the books or in terms of a “Savage” Marvel book if that means anything? Somewhere in the bureaucratic stratosphere, of course, there were people who did know the justification for it and for everything else the Allies were doing. To this day, most Russians think World War II was something that happened primarily in their country and the battles everywhere else in the world were a sideshow. In the years between Pearl Harbor and the Normandy invasion the war around the world grew progressively larger, more diffuse, less conclusive, and massively more chaotic. It was poorly planned and incompetently commanded, and its ultimate goal seemed preposterous: even if it had gone perfectly, it would have left a large army in northern Tuscany faced with the impossible task of getting across the Alps. The storm center then was in Russia, where the German army was hurling attack after overwhelming attack at the Soviet lines. The Romans knew that their empire was possible only because it was built out of the wreckage Alexander had left behind him in the Middle East. The American military, meanwhile, was conducting campaigns that to this day are almost impossible to understand or justify. It may have been the single largest battle fought in human history, and it ended — like all the battles on the eastern front — in a draw. Those were ceremonial and would not have been worn in the field!’ I watched through a few documentaries while I worked to just get into the right mindset. In writing the Germans here, how’d you go about being historically accurate without hitting people over the head? He can be impatient and harsh, perhaps even severe, but at his core is an emotional, empathetic human being. “The infantryman hates shells more than anything else,” Bill Mauldin wrote about the front lines in Italy. The Italian invasion, as it happened, was the result of a complicated attempt to appease the Russians, who were increasingly doubtful that their allies were serious about taking on Germany. Victory or defeat in a campaign became irrelevant to them too when they found themselves in the worst place on earth. That being said, your work on Marvel’s superhero books are few and far between: an underappreciated Thunderbolts run, and some work on Warlock & The Infinity Watch and some one-off issues. Joe, this isn’t your first time drawing him but it’s a very young Logan – how do you see him and what are you trying to get across when you draw him for this story? His phrasing makes it sound like the men were expressing an aesthetic preference, like a choice among distasteful rations. Added to all this noise was the swishing and fluttering overhead of our own supporting artillery fire. conditions in trenches gallery trench coats cool trench coat marianna trench nice trench coat trench games in the trenches what is a trench diseases in wwi wwi trenches today trench between front and support trench trench locations life in the trenches quotes rats and lice in the trenches the mariana trench trench coat philippines shop trench coat life in the western front mud in the trenches trench coat images what motivated british soldiers to continue fighting in the trenches marianas trench dug wwi trench life french trenches support trench trenches diseases trenches game mariana trench pictures a line trench
