Josh, Gordon and Cody are high-schoolers from a small town in Oregon. Intense watercolor
and ink drawings tell their story: their fathers are all serving in
Iraq, and each is struggling with being the "man" of their household in
their fathers' absence. Ultimately, this violent and bleak graphic novel
presents a powerful picture of the sons left behind, as each dreams of
following in his father's footsteps and serving in the military.
