Starship Troopers Volume 1: Blaze of Glory
by Tony Lee, Sam Hart, Rod Reis (Illustrator)

STARSHIP GLORY – BLAZE OF GLORY – ALAMO BAY – From the mind of critically-acclaimed writer Tony Lee and the amazing art of Sam Hart comes a new story set in the Starship Troopers universe! We follow a raw recruit, Will Tanner as he joins a Mobile Infantry unit – Tamari’s Tigers – on a rescue mission to Alamar ‘ALAMO’ Bay. But when they arrive, they find that the base is surrounded by bugs, and that the base itself has secrets – secrets that cannot be let out into the world! Meanwhile Sergeant Lock meets an old ‘friend’ and realizes a chance to get out of the war for good, even if it means murder to do so. Can Will keep his wits together to not only fight the attacking bugs, but to save a young privates life? Based on the bestselling novel by Robert A. Heinlein, ALAMO BAY takes the best parts from the book, TV series and movie – and has cameos from loved characters like Carmen, Rico and Zim!

This is an awesome spinoff from the Heinlein novel, filtered through the film adaptations in some ways. That meant less politics and philosophy and more blowing stuff up, which is okay in graphic novel form.

As a fan of the original novel and of the movie and television spinoffs this is a must read! This graphic novel does an excellent job of bring new life into the classic military sci-fi novel. By combining elements of all three incarnations of the story (The original book, the movie and the cg tv series) the arthurs and artists create a great and enjoyable experience that stays true to the original book that started it all. I highly recommend this to all sci-fi military fans, even those not into graphic novels!
