Overview

"No one, from Stephen Ambrose to Steven Spielberg, can tell a better story than A Sailor's Story." ― Max Brooks, author of World War Z
"What makes A Sailor's Story most compelling is its modest grace. It's not really a memoir of war, but of life aboard a floating town. Mr. Glanzman's stories are like those you'd hear from a favorite uncle, true tales about average men who were most concerned about beer, women and gambling, not life, death and the enemy." -- The New York Times
"This flawlessly reproduced graphic novel will introduce a whole new generation of appreciative readers to one of the most talent artists and storytellers the Golden Age of comics ever produced. Very highly recommended." -- The Midwest Book Review
"Sam Glanzman is one of the great storytellers of 20th-century comics."-- A. V. Club
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.
Exclusive Bonus Material:
- New Foreword by bestselling author Max Brooks
- New Introduction by original editor Larry Hama
- New Afterword by Batman writer Chuck Dixon
- Exclusive Glanzman tributes by Joe Kubert, Stan Lee, Denny O'Neil, Walt Simonson, Chris Claremont, Timothy Truman & many others
