Zettwoch, Dan – Iron Clad


Iron Clad

You know, I would think that historical comics would be pretty boring things. I don’t think I’ve seen one yet that has been dull, maybe it’s just latent memories of school or something. This is the tale of the beginning of iron battleships when they were used in the Civil War. He uses all kinds of references and has a great ear for realistic, old timey (I know there are better words to use, I just wanted to say “old timey”) dialogue. What makes it fascinating is that nobody actually died in the battle he depicted, as both of the ships were evenly matched. Great art and it’s pretty much a history lesson, which is the kind of thing that you don’t get much in comics. Go here, or to the Catastrophe page to see all of this comics…
