Battle Born: Lapis Lazuli

Uriarte’s attempts at exploring the ideological differences between members of the squad (especially between a self-described redneck and a Hispanic woman) are admirable but rely on slightly cliché dialog; the story works best as a tragic meditation on the value of honor and justice in a world ruled by violence.

The White Donkey: Terminal Lance

Spiked with bitter and obscene humor, this debut and first-ever graphic novel about the Iraq War from a veteran reveals the cynical tedium of daily life in combat and how voluntary service can lead to an existential crisis of self-blame. Compelling reading for news watchers and would-be enlistees, older teens and up, and for veterans and their families and caregivers. See also Oliver Morel and Maël's Walking Wounded: Uncut Stories from Iraq.
