Wheels of Terror The Graphic Novel

by Sven Hassel, Jordy Diago

Wheels of Terror The Graphic Novel Synopsis

A graphic novel adaptation of Sven Hassel's classic war novel, WHEELS OF TERROR, illustrated by Jordy Diago. Stationed on the Eastern Front and now equipped with armoured vehicles, Sven Hassel and his comrades from the 27th Penal Regiment fight on remorselessly . . . All of them should be dead: life expectancy on the Front is measured in weeks. But Sven, Porta, the Old Un and the Legionnaire fight to the end, not for Germany, not for Hitler, but for survival. From the blistering cold to the horrors of tank warfare, WHEELS OF TERROR is a sobering depiction of war's brutalities, and the violence and inhumanity that the history books leave out.

Wheels of Terror The Graphic Novel Press Reviews

Wheels of Terror: The Graphic Novel is as much a classic of the anti-war literature as the original novel is. I urge you to get it. * Upcoming 4 Me * What Jordy has done is keep the tale in Sven's own words bringing his artistic talents to the fore and giving the readers what they fell in love with in their original read, hard-core action, top notch dialogue and of course a dark humour that war brings out in man...Great item. * Falcata Times * Grim, bleak, blackly funny and still ferociously forceful, this pictorial interpretation is a splendid first outing from all involved, deftly negotiating the minefield of how to keep the necessarily horrendous visual aspect from overpowering the events...all in all this is a book to satisfy old fans and make a legion of new ones. * Comics Review * Close reading, much swooning over the artwork, and quite a lot of plaudits, are what this volume deserves * Bookbag.co.uk * This is a book of horrors. And should be left alone by those prone to nightmares . . . A great war novel * Alan Sillitoe, author of SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING * Jordy Diago is to be complimented for his achievements; I certainly hope to see more from him * Garth Ennis, author of PREACHER * An excellent and faithful adaption of the classic anti-war novel by Sven Hassel * Pat Mills, author of Charley's War *
