About the Author

Jacques Tardi is a pioneering European cartoonist. His Adele Blanc-Sec series was adapted into a feature by Luc Besson, and he was behind the recent animated film April and the Extraordinary World. His comics are award winning (including the U.S.'s Eisners). He lives in Paris with his wife, the singer Dominique Grange, and their cats.


Tardi is bringing very specific and very effective weapons to bear in his chillingly successful effort to convey [the] particular horror [of World War I].--Sean T. Collins
Tardi's tales from World War I capture the morbid drudgery that is trench warfare and finds pockets of profundity that speak to the nature of war and man. His stark, inky forms perfectly convey the blackened skies, scorched landscape, and gritty reality faced by thousands of soldiers.--Matt White "10 Great Comics Short Story Collections "
Tardi's aesthetic is tailor made for this kind of violence, and his inky impressionism carries chilling tactility without peer. There are, simply put, few people who can render bodies with as much physical weight as the deceptively-cartoonish Tardi, and there are few stories worthy of applying that skill as this one.--Shea Hennum
It's a hugely powerful work, both moving and horrific and filled with anger for the suffering and injustices one group of 'civilized' humans can visit upon another... [W]orks like this are needed to remind us of the monstrous acts we can be capable of.--Joe Gordon
Tardi's depiction of the First World War is so impassioned and visceral that it can be compared to the work of the artists who actually served in the trenches.--Joe Sacco, author of Palestine
