Garo Feature #11

For the May, 1967, issue, I'm highlighting one story: Kenji Nanba's "Battlefield, part 1". Click on the image to go to the media fire album.



It's the middle of WW II, and a group of American soldiers are killing time between attacks. A greenhorn has just been transferred into the unit, and the group introduces themselves. Then the fighting starts and one by one the unit gets picked off as they also whittle down the German enemy. They radio for tank support, but there's only one tank in the area that can be rerouted to them. A tank does arrive, but it's one of the German's. That tank does get eliminated, and at the end, only the new kid is left standing as, finally, the American tank makes its appearance. 23 pages.
