Fever Ridge continues with a historical narrative analyzing the people, forces and events that led to the desperate fight for mastery of the Pacific. We watch as the river of history flows from the 1860s to MacArthur's flight from Corregidor under personal threat of the Japanese, to hang him, his wife and 4-year-old son before the eyes of the Emperor.

    There is a lot of reading involved in this issue but people who would be interested in this title should be okay with that. If you enjoy history or military stories, this book is for you. I will say this may read better as a graphic novel though. Read Full Review

    Fever Ridge #2 is a bit of a strange follow up to the first issue, as it takes a break from the main characters to present the historical background of the Pacific Theater. But history is all about the context, and Heimos and Runge ably deliver what could be dry exposition in an exciting way. Heimos and Runge are building up a promising war comic, reminiscent of The Thin Red Line orThe Naked and the Dead.All-in-all, I definitely did not regret shelling out four bucks for this.
