The ’Nam

    (Marvel, 1986-1993)
™ and ©1986 Marvel Entertainment Group

Viet Nam wasn’t the sort of place where heroes like G.I. Joe or Sgt. Rock would ever have fit in. It was different in the ’Nam: hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys, or even which side you were playing on.

Marvel’s The ’Nam is a war comic for that very different war. Always maintaining a strong sense of story, it nevertheless paints the entire conflict in murky shades of gray, where “good guys” don’t always win, and the real losers are often those who weren’t doing the fighting.

Although Frank Castle (who would later become the Punisher) has been known to make an appearance from time to time, The ’Nam is no place for super-heroes. Well-plotted and compelling, this series has enjoyed long success in an era where other war comics don’t seem to sell.
