Luftwaffe: 1946 (Vol. 2)

 LU12   (Antarctic, 1997–2000)

™ and ©1998 Ted Nomura
Series covers cross-title Families of Altered Wars storyline, parts #43-61. Black and white series.

(From The Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

This is the second part of Ted Nomura’s “Families of Altered Wars” cycle, begun in Tigers of Terra. His determination in this strip to see things from the Nazis’ point of view is apparently justified by the exclusion of authentic swastika decals from some plastic model kits. The incomprehensible alternative history plot is just an excuse to include ever more incredible aircraft, which (with excellent computer toning by Ben Dunn) are drawn very well, and a load of funny-looking nubiles in various uniforms, who are not. Sample expository dialogue: “We knew the day would come when they’d introduce the high-flying B-29’s after we drove the B-17’s, B-24’s, and Lancasters out of the skies!” It’s really only for fetishists of one kind or another. The annual is a laugh though, containing Nomura’s juvenilia, some of which you could sell to certain hipsters if you put Gary Panter’s name on it. ~GK
