"I personally oversaw the printing of this book in the dead of winter, sleeping in Kevin Eastman's pickup truck wrapped in a thin blanket between press runs. Good times. No kidding!
This book includes almost the complete contents of two oversized sketchbooks I kept while researching World War One for my Enemy Ace: War Idyll graphic novel. The sketchbooks were how I actually sold the project to DC Comics. I explained the project to Editor Andrew Helfer using the sketchbooks, and other loose sketches, to show him my understanding of the war. Coupled with a few sample pieces of the character Hans von Hammer, these materials convinced Andrew that the project was artistically valuable and he immediately began the process of getting the contracts going."
