In Country: Marvel Comics’ “The ‘Nam” Episode 7

Nam 7This time around we take a break from the month-by-month in real time look at the Vietnam War for a history lesson. Wayne Vansant, who would eventually become the book’s regular penciller, joins Doug Murray and Michael Golden for a look at the origins of the Vietnam War in “Good Old Days.” 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.
