Written and Illustrated by: Sam Glanzman
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.
