Image Comics have announced that writer Jason Aaron (Southern Bastards, The Goddamned, Scalped) and artist Cameron Stewart (Motor Crush, Fight Club 2) will release a deluxe hardcover edition, containing extras, of their Vietnam War-set miniseries The Other Side in July 2017.
The Other Side brings us a Vietnam War story from the perspective of two young soldiers on opposite sides of the conflict. In this deluxe edition, we can also expect extra materials from the files of both the writer and the artist, including Cameron Stewart’s own pictures, drawings, and journal entries from his research trip to Vietnam.
Jason Aaron talks about the project:
I’ve never worked harder on a comic than I did on this. And if I hadn’t, I don’t know where I’d be today. This book gave me a career. And in these pages, Cameron and Dave McCaig gave us all some of the most intense and haunting visuals the war comic genre has ever seen.
Working on this book was one of the highlights of both my career and my life so far, and I’m thrilled for it to be re-released in this deluxe edition. I think it remains as visceral and powerful today as it did a decade ago.
The Other Side: Special Edition Hardcover arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, July 26th and bookstores Tuesday, August 1st.
