VETERANS DAY: Soldiers, Superheroes and Back Again, by ROY THOMAS

OUR ARTISTS AT WAR: How war comics informed the creation of The Invaders and All-Star Squadron…

TwoMorrows has a new illustrated history book out this month — Our Artists at War, by Richard J. Arndt and Steven Fears, an in-depth look at war comics and the creators and publishers that have produced them over the decades.

The 160-page, full-color volume (which lists for $27.95) is due out by the end of the month — you can pre-order it here — but with Veterans Day upon us, it seemed like the perfect time to run an EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT.

But first check out the table of contents:

The preface is by comics luminary Roy Thomas, who writes of the tension between war comics and superhero comics and how they relate to one another — particularly his own Invaders and All-Star Squadron titles.

It’s a thought-provoking piece and it’s brought to you below in its entirety. Following that is a series of pages from the book, so you have a good sense of what else it has to offer.

Here’s Roy:

And here’s a small assortment of pages from the book:

Our Artists at War is due Nov. 24, though that is subject to change. It will be available at comics shops and booksellers but you can also order it directly from TwoMorrows. Click here.
