Gulf War Journal - Volume One: Desert Storm
HARVEY AWARD NOMINEE comic writer and artist Don Lomax assembles his Desert Storm Journal comic series and brings back his central character from his critically acclaimed VIETNAM JOURNAL books. August 1, 1990, Saddam Hussein, with his eye on the rich oil fields of Kuwait rolled his army into that neighboring country with the intention of annexing Kuwait as a province, while claiming its riches for himself. War was brewing once again on the American horizon. Scott 'Journal' Neithammer comes out of retirement to cover the first Persian Gulf War. He finds himself also caught up in the war between the Pentagon and the press! Fed up with press restrictions, he heads off into the desert on his own - and gets an unwelcome firsthand taste of the full fury of modern American firepower! Collects issues 1-4 of DESERT STORM JOURNAL. "First rate...alternates documentary-style reporting with documentary-style fiction. One of the five best war comics." - Don Thompson, The Comics Buyer's Guide. "Stresses authenticity. Anyone who saw the real city of Khafji in Saudi Arabia will recognize landmarks in the comic book." - Ron Jensen, The Stars and Stripes.
