First Look: Ennis' Battlefields: Dear Billy
This month sees the start of Garth Ennis Battlefields at Dynamite with the first issue of the three issue Night Witches storyline. Fans of Ennis’ war stories won’t have long to wait for the second installment, though, as Dynamite has confirmed for Newsarama that the second Battlefields installment, Dear Billy will begin in January.The publisher has given Newsarama a first look inside #1 (to the right) which features art by Peter Snjeberg and covers by John Cassaday and Garry Leach. The setting for the miniseries is 1942, and, from the solicitation:
In the tropical splendour of the South China sea, as the Second World War spreads across the far east, a young woman finds herself in paradise... and then in hell. Nurse Carrie Sutton is caught up in the Japanese invasion of Singapore, suffering horrors beyond her wildest nightmares- and survives. Now she attempts to start her life anew, buoyed up by a growing friendship with a wounded pilot- only for fate to deliver up the last thing she ever expected. Carrie at last has a chance for revenge... but should she take it? In the midst of a world torn apart by war, you can fight and you can win- but you still might not get the things you truly want.
