Yes, I have a degree in Social Sciences education....which immediately makes everyone want to label me as "a history guy" but I've made it no secret in any conversation about the discipline, that I tend to HATE history but love the Political Science side and/or other areas of the discipline. However, I'm having to begin donning my "historian" hat again soon with the courses I have to start teaching in the fall. Lucky for me, the new project from John Luzar and others at Resistance Comics, created the jolt I needed to re-invest in history again!
Marguerite vs the Occupation (Resistance Comics)
Marguerite vs. the Occupation is an amazing one-shot focusing on the tactics of a young woman (and the resistance) and the actions taken on one fateful day in an attempt to reclaim her home from the Nazi occupation during World War II. What makes this more personal, is she is taking back her literal home.
What I think is amazing, is that this is not just a war comic, there is a deep emotional exploration of what Marguerite felt and could remember from her childhood home, and the bedroom which is currently in use as a machine gun outpost. Watching the war and the memories play out in conjunction combines for quite the beautiful story.
For the ridiculously low price of $8 you can get Marguerite vs the Occupation in addition to the first two Resistance Comics projects (Mine and The Worth & The Cost) and the benefits keep getting better than there. If you are any kind of action and/or history buff, I highly recommend backing this project!!!! (don't forget to check out the image gallery below!
