Comments Private Mandella

  • Ryan

    The Forever War is the literary counterweight to Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers, depicting a war with an alien species that's as pointless and horrific as most human wars. As Earth sends its first colony ships into space, one is destroyed by a newly-encountered alien race. Humankind retaliates by creating an elite military force, including the story's protagonist, and sending it to attack the aliens' base. Thus begins an interstellar conflict of attack and counterattack. Haldeman and Marvan [...]

    Bastante fiel al libro, sobre todo en su crítica a la guerra sin sentido.


  • Sam

    I enjoyed this, it matches the book well and the art is good quality. Its always interesting to see something I imagined drawn out, and this was a good style of drawing for that type of thing.


  • Garren

    The original book meets Heavy Metal magazine aesthetic and atmosphere. It's a decent pairing, if super-dated by now.


  • Greta

    Graphic novel adaptation of the classic SF novels 'The Forever War' by Joe Haldeman. Written and illustrated by Marvano, a Belgian author. It was obvious that this was not an original story, but rather a summary. The story was too fast-paced, and sometimes downright obscure. I think that people who read the original novels, will appreciate it more.


  • Neil

    A classic piece of sf, translated into graphic novel form in the Euro-style of Marvano. Great first third of the story, even though you don't quite get the sense of introspection that novel delivers, it is otherwise quite faithful.


  • Fabricio Guillen

    Excelente libro, se puede describir como "cuando la realidad se encuentra con la ciencia ficcion"! Si le gusta el tema de la guerra este libro es para usted.


  • Danijel

    Excellent story about war and warfare, and evolution of mankind
