Well-deserving of high
praise, this issue is a brilliant example of stunning story and illustration. While the previous
issue’s Yam and his racist Sergeant travel deep into the heart of darkness, a
high profile actress, Fawn Landers, is elsewhere making an anti-war movie. As
she heavily promotes peace, Fawn doesn’t realize she’s been deviously setup.
Her producer, Declan Rule, is actually an undercover CIA agent with a secret
agenda of his own.
Author Mark Kidwell
(Fango’s BUMP) continues to gradually build tension, keeping the gripping pace
page by page. The highlights of his writing style are certainly the strong
characterizations and dialogue, the best example of Kidwell’s being the taut
confrontation between Yam and his Sergeant. In his monologue, Sergeant
acknowledges his extreme hatred for Yam, knowing exactly what the war has done
to his mental state.
Aided by the gritty
colors of Jay Fotos (30 DAYS OF NIGHT: NIGHT, AGAIN), the pencils and inks by
artist Nat Jones (ROB ZOMBIE’S THE NAIL) perfectly ‘68’s jungle setting.
Declan’s helicopter ride is unbelievably brutal and fierce, while the undead
are absolutely nasty looking, with a final page that should sufficiently shock.
Seriously, no comics fan
should be missing out on ’68. It's an incredibly smart and original look at war
