American Century

    (Vertigo, 2001-2003)
™ and ©2001 Howard Chaykin, Inc. and DC Comics

A comic book with drama, comedy, and a look at life as it really is.

Beginning in 1949, we see the life and friends of Harry Block, pilot, war hero, and unhappy husband. Life is complicated with an unfaithful wife, bigoted coworkers, and a letter from Uncle Sam inviting him to return to active duty. Too much is too much and Harry’s private plane crashes into the ocean, ending all his problems. Of course, it takes folks a while to realize he had cleaned out his bank account before “dying.” American Century follows the road of Harry Block as he travels the highways and byways of life. The series lets readers take a look at life and gives them a taste of mid-20th century ethics and values, with a little twist of everyday reality thrown in to give it flavor.

For mature readers due to language and adult situations.
