Comics normally feature the unbelievable or the fantasy superhero. 'The Stringbags' features both of those - the unbelievable achievements of the World War Two Swordfish and the heroism of their crews.
Produced in graphic form, this excellent book is superbly illustrated. Both writer and artist have paid a great deal of attention to detail as they portray events in which the Fairey Swordfish played a pivotal role - The Battle of Taranto, the sinking of the Bismarck and the Channel Dash etc.
Written and illustrated by a multi award winning team who have worked with DC and Marvel!
Young or old, the graphic presentation enhances the pithy narrative rather than detracting from it.
Comic in format, but not in content. Very much like the FAA itself, this book has real heart and deals well with being simultaneously academic, informative, entertaining, respectful, reverential and emotive.
