My WareBook - 2015
In their passionate intensity these drawings are as emotionally poignant as the very best war work that Paul Nash or Nevinson ever produced, while technically the broad lines and heavy blacks of Mr. Szuts have a sledge-hammer mastery which is more akin to the work of Forain and Steinlen."-The Sunday Times (London). The pen, ink, and wash images of this graphic novel speak louder than words in relating a soldier's experiences during World War I. My War, a dramatic narrative by Hungarian veteran Szegedi Szuts, portrays the tragedy of wartime life on the battlefield as well as on the home front. With pathos and grim humor, more than 200 images trace a young recruit's progress from initial enthusiasm to ultimate disillusionment. Includes newForeword by Peter Kuper. --Provided by publisher.
