Try To Survive The Vietnam War And More In ‘The Cape: 1969′ #1 [Preview]

If you’ve read Joe Hill, Jason Ciaramella and Zach Howard’s original The Cape, chances are you’ve come to expect a level of… darkness… from the creative team. From the looks of The Cape: 1969 #1 by Hill, Ciaramella new artist Nelson Daniel, fans can expect a consistent tone in the pages of the new four-issue miniseries, which takes place in the thick of the Vietnam War and tells the story of just how the book’s titular “cape” came to be. IDW’s provided us with an early look at the first seven pages of the issue, complete with a look at its primary cover by Howard, plus a variant cover by Daniel. You can take a look at the pages before the book arrives in stores this Wednesday, after the jump.From IDW’s official solicitation info:

It’s 1969 and the war in Vietnam rages on. Captain Chase, a Medevac helicopter pilot for the US Army, is shot down over enemy territory. He and his crew are in a fight for their lives as they play a deadly game of cat and mouse with the Vietcong. We soon learn that machine guns and grenades aren’t the only scary things hiding in the jungle. Find out what happens in this origin prequel to last year’s Eisner Award-nominated hit, with story by Joe Hill and Jason Ciaramella, and art and colors by Nelson Daniel (Road Rage, The Cape). Explore your dark side.

You can read the first seven pages from The Cape: 1969 #1 below.
