Titan Brings Joe Haldeman’s ‘The Forever War’ Back To Comics [Exclusive]
Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War was a groundbreaking science-fiction novel when originally published in 1974, merging high-concept science fiction with gripping social commentary. Next year, Titan Comics are reprinting and serializing the 1988 adaptation written by Haldeman himself, with art by the legendary Mavarno.
The Forever War tells the story of Earth’s millennia long war with a race of aliens known as the Taurans, told from the perspective of one human soldier who survives and sees the entire war. Haldeman, a Vietnam veteran, based the the war itself on his own experiences, not only of combat, but of how a war affects a society and its ongoing perception of the war and its enemies.
The book was originally adapted to comics in 1988, originally published in Dutch as De Eeuwige Oorlog and was followed by a sequel trilogy titled A New Beginning. Titan’s reprint of the series serializes the original volumes and come packed with bonus materials, including design elements from the series and multiple, brand-new covers for each issue.
