WAR STORIES TP VOL 05
MAY171178
(W) Garth Ennis (A/CA) Tomas Aria
The war rumbles on in this fifth collection of Garth Ennis’ masterpiece. Included are: the three part “Send A Gunboat”, the men of the Royal Navy’s gunboat squadrons defend England’s coast against Nazi raiders. The little boats are fast, heavily-armed and deadly- and terribly vulnerable. And the enemy is never far away, as the commander of one vessel finds when his German opposite number takes a dangerous interest in him and his crew. Also the four-part “Vampire Squadron. ” In the dark days of winter, 1940, a handful of pilots show up at a remote Royal Air Force base in rural England. Some are British, some are Poles, Czechs, French, Australians, Canadians- the orphans of Nazi-occupied Europe and the children of the Empire. No other squadron wants them; they don’t even like each other much. Which is unfortunate, because they’re about to take to the deadly night skies at the height of the Blitz- Hitler’s dreadful aerial onslaught on the cities of Britain. This volume collects War Stories #16 – 22 of the ongoing comic book series.
