In the summer of 1945, a great tide of battered soldiers began flowing backto the United States from around the globe. All they wanted was to settle backinto quiet workaday lives without fear. How tragic that the forces unleashed byWorld War II made this simple wish impossible. The second volume ofFantagraphics' series reprinting Mauldin's greatest, Willie & Joe: BackHome brilliantly chronicles the struggles and disillusionments of theseearly postwar years and, in doing so, tells Bill Mauldin's own extraordinarystory of his journey home to a wife he barely knew and a son he had only seen inpictures. The drawings capture the texture and feel, the warp and woof, of thisconfusing time: the ubiquitous hats and cigarettes, the domestic rubs, therising fear of another war, and new conflicts over Civil Rights, civilliberties, and free speech.
