Sci-Fi Master Joe Haldeman’s Interstellar War Intensifies With New Comics!
December 4, 2017 – With the much-anticipated The Forever War graphic novel adaptation being released in bookstores tomorrow, Titan Comics is excited to announce the next installment in novelist Joe Haldeman, Gay Haldeman, and Marvano’s epic science-fiction comic book series, The Forever War: Forever Free!
Based on Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War novels – adapted by Joe and Gay Haldeman and legendary artist, Marvano – Titan’s new comic series adapts the Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and World Fantasy Award-winning series.
Inspired by Haldeman’s own Vietnam War experiences, The Forever War series tells the story of William Mandella – survivor of a catastrophic interstellar war. Mandella, together with a small group of human survivors, returns to Earth to find the human race greatly changed.
Evolved into a group mind called Man, society is now intrusive and autocratic, denying all individuality. The veterans plan to escape by means of space travel, but, when their ship starts to fail, Mandella’s team begins to search for the enigmatic entity responsible – The Unknown.
Since the original publication of The Forever War, Joe Haldeman – a Vietnam veteran and Purple Heart recipient – has produced a continuous string of SF classics.
Besides winning the Hugo Award, Nebula Award, Locus Award and the World Fantasy Award, the series has garnered praise from literary powerhouse,
Stephen King: “If there was a Fort Knox for science-fiction writers, we’d have to lock Joe Haldeman up.”
