Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Yesterday, I finished another graphic novel, this one depicting the Vietnam War experience from both sides. It's called, not unexpectedly, The Other Side, and the author claims to have been inspired by Gustav Hasford, whose book The Short-Timers was the inspiration for the Kubrick film Full Metal Jacket. If you've read, and/or watched, these things, you'll see the resemblance, though in this book, it is handled very differently. Worthwhile.
