Don Lomax, who was drafted into the Army and did a 1966-67 Vietnam War tour with the 98th Light Equipment Maintenance Company, wrote and drew the Vietnam Journal comic book back in 1987. Individual pages of the graphically drawn and written in-country comic, now out of print, are now online .
Vietnam Journal started out a black-and-white comic and later was a color strip in Gallery Magazine. It now lives on in increments on Lomax’s website as a “web comic.” The story line follows Scott Neithammer, a freelance war correspondent who is reporting on the war from the infantryman’s point of view.
“We will leave each posting up for a period of time as traffic on this site dictates, ” Lomax (below) says on the site, “then they will be replaced with new pages on a regular basis. Unfortunately, due to space restrictions, the pages will not be archived.”
