A deeper look at comic book superhero soldiers

The military in comic books: Comic book superheroes have been influenced by the true heroes of our armed forces for decades. They frequently recreate the actions of presidents, military leaders, and soldiers. From Captain America punching Hitler in the jaw on his very first cover, to The Punisher surviving the battle of Firebase Valley Forge, there are countless instances when the military has crossed over to the pages of comic books.

Soldiers and superheroes: A veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Jason Inman discovered his love of comic books during long days at the Tallil Air Base in southern Iraq. He couldn’t help but ask why so many comic books are filled with service members. Maybe it’s their loyalty to everyday citizens and the never-ending quest for justice. The men and women who lace up their books and sacrifice their lives know that battle can change a person. What kinds of soldiers were these fictional characters, and how were they changed by war?

Discover the super soldiers in Marvel comics, DC comics and beyond: Super Soldiers: How Military Life Transformed our Favorite Comic Book Heroes (and Villains) looks at the intersection between war and pop culture to understand these questions and more. Each chapter revisits one of twenty military comic book characters and the villains they fought. Inman describes superhero soldiers from DC comics and Marvel comics, including lesser-known characters lost to time.

Super Soldiers is perfect for fans of military science fiction and everyone who wants to know the stories behind their favorite comic books: You’ll love Super Soldiers if you enjoyed DC Comics Encyclopedia All-New EditionThe Secret History of Wonder WomanThe League of Regrettable Superheroes, and The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains.

Say It Now

By

Say It Now — Featured in the New York Times

We never know how much time we have left with the people we love. If there's someone you care about deeply—a parent, grandparent, child, friend, colleague, teacher, or neighbor—don’t wait to express how you feel. Say it now.

In Say It Now, Sherry Richert Belul offers 33 creative ways to say “I love you” to the most important people in your life—through words, actions, and meaningful gifts.

Sherry shares classic ideas (writing a list of “10 reasons why you’re amazing”), thoughtful ideas (driving your friend to their divorce hearing so they don’t have to go alone), zany ideas (a bubble flash mob in the park), simple projects (filling a glass jar with compliments for a friend), and quick projects that take thirty seconds or less (recording a video message to cheer up a sick relative who’s recuperating at home). You don’t need to be an “artist” or a “crafty person” in order to follow Sherry’s instructions—and you don’t need tons of time, either. Most of her suggestions require nothing more than some paper, a pen, and a couple of minutes. Sherry reminds readers that the greatest gift of all is simply a few moments of your undivided attention.

In addition to dozens of gift-making and letter-writing ideas, Say It Now includes moving stories that will bring readers to tears—stories about the importance of appreciating each day and never taking it for granted.

Say It Now will inspire readers to hug their kids tightly, call their mom for a long overdue chat, whip together a handmade gift, and say the words that need to be said.
