Omaha Beach on D-Day! We’re so pleased to share a first look at the advanced books for this title, which just showed up in the office right now.
They look super! This book is a new format for us — it’s translated from French. What it does is take an iconic historical photograph, and tell the story (in graphic novel format) of how that photograph came to be taken. It also includes a historical essay at the end.
Comics + photographs + history — it’s like peanut butter and jelly and some other sort of delicious sandwich thing, possibly bread!
Here’s the cover for the book — you can see immediately the photo and the comic elements!
And here’s the spine.
Here’s a set of books all lined up together. They’re very dignified!
And a close-up on the soldier at the bottom!
(Extremely red) title page!
Here’s one of the comics parts in the interior.
And here’s the essay part!
And the back cover!
Omaha Beach on D-Day will be in stores in October. We can’t wait for this handsome graphic novel!
