About the Author
Born in Belgium, Marc Vanoppen, known as Marvano, started out as an interior designer. Years later, he began an alternate career as an illustrator, eventually becoming editor-in-chief of the magazine Kuifje, then managing the comics department of Flemish publisher Den Gulden Engel. All the while he published his own comics and went on to write and illustrate dozens of graphic novels over decades, most notably adapting Joe Halderman's famous novel The Forever War.
Reviews
"The Jewish Brigade contains enough history and context to make you curious to find out more about it, especially if not familiar with the intricacies of those times." --Think Now "Marvano's illustrations are very classic, reminiscent of comic book artistry from the 1990s.... This was an enjoyable book that focused on a piece of history that sometimes doesn't make it to the History class curriculum." --The Graphic Library "If you want to get a good introduction to the chaos that followed the war and the many gruesome and violent tragedies that happened well after the war was officially over, this is not a bad place to start.The art work and writing are quite good.... [and] well worth a read." --Brown Pundits? "The story brings to light lesser-known aspects of military history." --Publishers Weekly? "The illustrations do a good job of conveying emotion and action and give backdrops and equipment a nice level of detail." --The Fandom Post "Marvano's historical graphic novel The Jewish Brigade covers the group that fought as part of the British Army in World War II.... The art exemplifies strong visual characterization, and the convincing backgrounds, from European cities and countrysides to Middle Eastern deserts, deliver a strong sense of place throughout. The Jewish Brigade is an exciting, moving, and thoughtful historical graphic novel." --Foreword Reviews "The art is gorgeous, the story is incredible and ... [this would] make an amazing award-winning movie." --Masked Library "Marvano does a wonderful job as both writer and illustrator. His artwork is colorful, yet expresses the dreary landscapes of Europe at the end of the war as well as the deserts of Israel.... The Jewish Brigade is a great graphic novel, plunging readers into deep subject matter, showing normal people living through traumatic and violent times.... I continue to be impressed with the graphic novels published by Dead Reckoning and highly recommend The Jewish Brigade." --GeekDad "Its brooding earth--and night-toned graphics, its moments of surreal calm followed by horrifying violence, capture perfectly both the ambiguity and the terrible reality [of the war.]" --Jewish Review of Books "The script and art are both top-notch and the plot is especially great." --Arcadia Pod? "The Jewish Brigade, a profound interpretation of a critical period in world affairs. The story of the Jewish Brigade is familiar to many; this unique version is brilliant." --San Francisco Book Review "The Jewish Brigade is an insightful read that not only tells a great story, but also provides a lot of great information about the very real titular Jewish Brigade. The book can at times be a bit depressing-which makes sense as this is WWII we're talking about-but its little glimmers of hope for a better tomorrow are what help make it such a lovely read. Definitely a fantastic book! 5 out of 5 stars." --The Newest Rant?
