Exclusive Comics Excerpt: ‘Notes for a War Story’




Every week, the Comics Page introduces you to brand-new graphic novels by the world's best artists and writers. Manga, superheroes, indie comix — we'll cover them all as our editors select the best the exploding comics world has to offer.



Giuliano, Christian, and Little Killer live in an unnamed European country, making time with petty theft and one-upsmanship. When a war comes to their town, it changes everything — including the friendships Guiliano thought would last forever.


Today on the Comics Page, we're proud to present a ten-page excerpt from Notes for a War Story, the prize-winning graphic novel by Italian cartoonist Gipi, out in English for the first time this month from First Second Books.
