Jacques Tardi is responsible for the two acknowledged graphic novel masterpieces about World War I: It Was the War of the Trenches and Goddamn This War! To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI in 2014, Fantagraphics is proud to release a two-volume boxed set collecting these two perennial classics. The first book, It Was the War of the Trenches, focuses on the day to day of the grunts in the trenches, bringing that existence alive as no one has before or since with some of his most stunning artwork. His second WWI masterwork, Goddamn This War!, is told with a sustained sense of outrage, pitch-black gallows humor, and impeccably scrupulous historical exactitude, in masterful full color.
