Vietnam Journal

 VIEJ   (Apple, 1987-1990, 2002)

™ and ©1987 Don Lomax

From The Slings & Arrows Comic Guide:

Picking up with the escalation of hostilities in 1967, these are well-researched and detailed stories about the Vietnam war, written and drawn by Don Lomax. His focal point and narrator is a war correspondent cornily referred to as “Journal,” whose occupation allows attachment to different combat units. Set against an admirably passionate depiction of the ordinary soldier’s missions in hell, there’s little questioning of the rights or wrongs of U.S. involvement in Vietnam, and the portrayal of the Vietnamese is rarely more than silent “gook” killers. If this doesn’t bother you, Vietnam Journal comes highly recommended, although the abundance of expository dialogue sometimes bogs it down. Every issue is complete in itself, and packs a lot of detail, with #3’s story of a manipulative TV journalist, or #10’s raid on a NVA outpost, good examples of the style and content. Other commitments prevented Lomax from maintaining a bimonthly publication schedule beyond #16, so future stories were released as self-contained mini-series.
