[A] remarkable book by one of the leading creators of historical and military graphic novels. This masterful comics adaptation makes for the ideal companion to the novel. - Comics Grinder If I suddenly had universal authority, I would order every world leader, every man or woman capable of summoning an army to fight for a cause, to read this book, either in the original that was published shortly after World War I, or in this modern graphic version. It tells a story so compelling, so necessary, about the human costs of war, that those leaders might, at least, think twice before ordering young men to lay down their lives amid the gore and senselessness of battle. - San Diego Jewish World All Quiet On The Western Front has been beautifully adapted. The story and characters are 100% believable. All human life is here, and sadly death too. Tragic and moving in equal measure, All Quiet On The Western Front is highly recommended. - Hellbound


The graphic novel format ... is easily readable and digestible. The adaptation is well done.... If you are not familiar with this story, I recommend this graphic novel as the way to do it. This adaptation could be well-used in a school setting to truly convey the horror of war, as opposed to just the history of it. --Sequential Tart


German novelist Remarque's 1928 novel introduces a motley crew of soldiers--from peat digger to postman--and then pins you to the witness stand as World War I kills them off horribly. Relentless, captivating, and iconic for conveying the tedium, brutality, and senselessness of war, the story's small triumphs, such as stealing and eating a goose, sneaking sex across enemy lines, or seeing a hated schoolmaster humiliated keep the men going. This adaptation from Vietnam veteran Vansant nails the novel's doomed fascination--of narrator Paul Baumer's original army gang, none survive. Also, the historical detail of uniforms, weapons, and settings has been well researched.... Unsparing of gross atrocities and small humiliations alike, Remarque's chronicle and Vansant's images capture the descent from idealism to frozen despair experienced by soldiers over millennia of combat. Adults and teens interested in war will learn much, in and outside of classrooms. --Library Journal B umer's story is a universal soldier's story that sees past nationality to show how horrible the war was on everyone, regardless of side. --Comicon.com The graphic novel format ... is easily readable and digestible. The adaptation is well done.... If you are not familiar with this story, I recommend this graphic novel as the way to do it. This adaptation could be well-used in a school setting to truly convey the horror of war, as opposed to just the history of it. --Sequential Tart
