A long holiday weekend!  Here’s this weekend’s light reading weekend reviews…because Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading.

To check out part one of historical fiction comics I reviewed this year click here.  Since I read more than I can review there’s also a part three I’ll post sometime in December.

Code Word: Geronimo

Dale A. Dye. Code Word: Geronimo.  San Diego, CA: IDW Publishing, September 20th, 2011. 88 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

The subtitle of this graphic novel is “The True Story of the Raid Against Osama Bin Laden.”  This is a comic book telling of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.  The publisher IDW Publishing brought together a very interesting and talented team to tell this story.  For instance this work is written by a former US Marine Captain Dale Dye.  Dye’s biographical background is rather remarkable with his beginning as an enlisted Marine who rose quickly to the rank of Master Sergeant within thirteen years and later became a commissioned officer.  He is a veteran of both Vietnam and Beirut.  I think no doubt his military background helped with the story; I have seen some other military historical theme graphic novels that has less attention to details in its accuracy both in terms of the writing and the artwork than this particular work.  This is also probably the only comic book that I have seen the creators include someone with a PhD.  Julia Dye is mentioned on the cover as having a PhD and her creator biography in the last page mentioned she has a doctorate in anthropology in human conflict and her career specialization is keeping “the Entertainment Industry honest…and helps Hollywood directors capture the realities of warfare.”
