“’The war to end all wars’ has become a magisterial comic book to end all comic books. I seldom give blurbs, but this book is an essential classic. Among all of Jacques Tardi’s towering achievements as a comics artist, nothing looms larger than this devastating crater of a work. It’s a compulsively readable wail of Existential despair, a kaleidoscope of war’s dehumanizing brutality and of Everyman’s suffering, as well as a deadpan masterpiece of the darkest black humor. The richly composed and obsessively researched drawings — perfectly poised between cartoon and illustration — march to the relentless beats of Tardi’s three horizontal panels per page to dig a hole deep inside your brain. This is one Hell of a book.” – Art Spiegelman
"Tardi’s depiction of the First World War is so impassioned and visceral that it can be compared to the work of the artists who actually served in the trenches." – Joe Sacco
"French master Tardi gives an infantry-level view of World War I’s meat-grinder carnage in grim vignettes that primarily keep tight, telling focus on the stories of individual soldiers. …[It Was the War of the Trenches] deserves a place on the top shelf of graphic lit.” – Cliff Froehlich, St. Louis Post-Dipatch
Praise for Goddamn This War!
"As brutal and horrific as the Great War itself, this book rivals All Quiet on the Western Front when it comes to the insane idiocy of the conflict.” – Max Brooks
I’m about 30 pages into my new (as yet untitled) crime story.
Here are some location shots: an el station, a diner and a bowling alley - these are all partly from reference pictures and partly from my head. All my stories take place in the same city, so there will likely be some visual overlap with my other stuff. This is going to be a pretty huge undertaking, I think - longer than Good Dog for sure.
I’ll be posting various things every week or so, just to show you what i’m up to - lord knows when it’ll be finished…
