Did you know that the name “spitfire” comes from a mistranslation of the nickname of a captured Spanish warship from about 400 years ago? The Spannish called their vessel “Fire sh**er” :)
This is a manga style comic about a young Spitfire pilot in WW2 and the crisis of concious he has about the war, killing, and his part in it. The art is mostly grey tones and it looks really good! The planes are drawn beautifully and the action pics are cool. It's interesting to see British WW2 pilots as manga shounen and the story style reminds me more of something from WW1 in feel. In all it's good looking work with few panels on each page so the art is nice and big, and it's a pleasant, easy read.
Rated T+. Read Spitfire
