A standalone story with guest art by industry great Rick Veitch (SWAMP THING)! The AK-47 is the shining star of resistance movements, small wars and domestic crime the world over. And this is the story of a single rifle's 30-year trek from Cold War Soviet Union to an unknown soldier deep in the African bush.

    If you havent been reading Unknown Soldier (you should be), A Gun in Africa is the perfect jumping on point. Joshua Dysarts powerful meditation on the human rights atrocities and daily battles in one of the most overlooked yet war torn areas of the world is easily one of the most important sequential art series ever.

    Rich Veitch, himself no stranger to intensely powerful Vertigo series, steps in as the issue's guest artist, providing a very different look for the series that's nevertheless true to Alberto Ponticelli's harrowing vision. The issue had me breathless all the way up till its final pages, when its tangential meditation on the AK-47 unexpectedly pushed Moses Lwanga's story forward in a significant way. God, I'm going to miss this book when it's gone. Read Full Review
