In Country: Marvel Comics’ “The ‘Nam” Episode 4

Nam 4Episode 4 of “In Country” is breaking news for the folks at home, or at least that’s what the guys in the 23rd think when they have a camera crew tag along with them on what should be a routine day. However, things don’t go as they think it will. “Six O’Clock News” is written by Doug Murray, penciled by Michael Golden, inked by Pepe Moreno and features events from May of 1966. As always, in addition to the summary and review of the issue I’ll be talking about the story’s historical context as well as taking a look at the letters, ‘Nam Notes, and ads.
