Johnny, Frankie and Dennis review Alan’s War, as written and illustrated by Emmanuel Guibert. In this episode of the comic book podcast we discuss how the author makes you feel like your sitting with a grandparent while listening to their stories (for better or for worse); the omnipotent power your great aunt has to pull you out of boot camp; the loneliness of serving abroad; the honesty Alan has with Emmanuel in telling his story; chubby folks and the beautiful people who date them; how Henry Miller helped reconnected Alan to his old friends; and the art and storytelling of Alan’s War.
