War is Hell

Section from a boarding exercise from school. More live-action geared than most of my stuff, but it was one of the funnest assignments I ever drewed. I used to love war comics when I was a kid. I've still got a big stack of Unknown Soldier and a couple of Weird War Tales comics that I bought when I was younger from a flea market for a quarter a piece.

Yeah, I know that there's no way in Hell you could kill a tank with a molotov cocktail, but it was in the script. I tried to justify it by having it hit a fuel tank on the back of the tank.

Nice stuff, Matt.. Who's teaching you the Storyboard class?

I love War Comics, too.. Have quite a run of the 'WEIRD WAR Tales' issues. And some 'Our Army At War' books..

I had a buddy in High School who collected the entire run of 'Sgt. Fury & his Howling Commandoes'.. But he used to always call him "Sergeant FURRY"! haha
..And his fuzzy comandoes, I s'pose?

I had Alex Greychuck for one semester and Bojan Redzic for another. But that was awhile ago, the new boarding teacher's a guy named Dimitri.

My favourite Weird War Stories was one called "Don't let me Die at D-Day" Where some G.I. made a deal with the devil that he wouldn't die on the beach.
