The definitive collection of Jason Aaron and Cameron Stewart’s Vietnam War series

Writer Jason Aaron (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, THE GODDAMNED, Scalped) and artist Cameron Stewart (MOTOR CRUSH, Fight Club 2) will release a deluxe hardcover edition, brimming with extras, of their acclaimed miniseries THE OTHER SIDE this July from Image Comics.

THE OTHER SIDE tells an unforgettable Vietnam War story from the point of view of two young soldiers on either side of the conflict. This deluxe edition will also include loads of extra materials straight from the files of both writer and artist—including Cameron Stewart’s pictures, drawings, and journal entries from his preliminary research trip to Vietnam.

“I've never worked harder on a comic than I did on this,” said Aaron. “And if I hadn't, I don't know where I'd be today. This book gave me a career. And in these pages, Cameron and Dave McCaig gave us all some of the most intense and haunting visuals the war comic genre has ever seen.”

“Working on this book was one of the highlights of both my career and my life so far, and I'm thrilled for it to be re-released in this deluxe edition,” said Stewart. “I think it remains as visceral and powerful today as it did a decade ago.”

THE OTHER SIDE SPECIAL EDITION HC (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0222-8, Diamond code: MAY170642) arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, July 26th and bookstores Tuesday, August 1st. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, June 26th.

THE OTHER SIDE SPECIAL EDITION HC is available for preorder via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Indigo.

Select praise for THE OTHER SIDE:

“This book isn’t trying to be important, it just is. Highest possible recommendation.” —Brian K. Vaughan (SAGA, PAPER GIRLS)

“Solidly executed in every way, THE OTHER SIDE is both a great start for newcomers to graphic novels and an achievement veterans of the form will appreciate.” —BookSlut

“Nothing short of a true classic, up there with Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and Alan Moore’s Watchmen.” —Library Journal

“THE OTHER SIDE perfectly nails the gruesome reality of war, but diverges from what you've seen and read previously through stark hallucinations, mangled moving corpses, and other unexpected elements—that never compromise the emotional integrity and reality of what you're reading.” —MTV News

“THE OTHER SIDE demonstrates that war comics, out of favor for decades, retain substantial viability.” —Booklist


My C2E2 Schedule

This weekend I'll be hanging out at C2E2 in Chicago. When I'm not at the local tiki bars or hot dog joints, here's where you'll find me.


Friday, April 21

12:00-1:00 pm -- Signing at the Marvel booth

3:00-4:00 pm -- LOVE IS LOVE signing at the CBLDF booth, #409


Saturday, April 22

4:00-5:00 pm -- MARVEL: The Next Big Thing panel, room S401

Sunday, April 23

12:00-1:00 pm -- Signing at the Marvel booth

I'll also occasionally be stationed in Artist Alley, at table P18, alongside Jason Latour. I'll be dropping by there whenever I can over the course of the weekend. Check my twitter, as I'll try to post some hours once I know them. We'll have BASTARDS and GODDAMNED trades for sale. But the hugs are free.

And so you know what I look like now, here's me on the set of the SCALPED pilot the other day, with Gil Birmingham as Chief Red Crow. Fucking surreal.

My Appearance Schedule for 2017

Where to see me in 2017. If you so desire. Be warned: more of my face is visible now.

April 21-23 -- C2E2, Chicago

April 28-30 -- Planet Comicon, Kansas City

May 25-28 -- MegaCon, Orlando

June 16-18 -- Heroes Con, Charlotte

There'll probably be a couple more cons added to the list later in the year, including at least one international trip. So stay tuned.

My signing policy remains the same. I don't charge anything for signatures. And if I'm at my own table, I'll sign however many books you've got. Though if you've got a massive stack and there's a line of folks behind you, I'll likely ask you to break it up and get back in line. But I also sometimes do signings through a publisher or through the con itself that are timed, ticketed or otherwise limited, so in that case, their restrictions apply.

Hope to see you out there.
