Glorious mickey-take of WWII comics

Adventures in the Rifle Brigade - Carlos Ezquerra, Garth Ennis

 

 

The dedication is to all the UK WWII comic books of the 1970s and 1980s and this takes the genre apart with humour, exposing all the prejudices and stereotypes of the era. Yorkshiremen only say “Ey Oop”, Cockney, Glaswegian, upper-class stereotypes all talk in stereotypical style as well. The Marvel WWII comics of the 60s and 70s also come under the microscope. Lots of double-entendres add to the humour. The plots are incidental

 

It's a lot of silly fun and well worth a look. Writing and artwork are very good if not explicit.
