June 6, 1944. D-Day. One hundred and eighty-two paratroopers from the United States Army parachuted into the French countryside a full 15 miles southeast of their intended target and deep behind enemy lines. This original graphic novel from DC Vertigo is based on the true story of the village of Graignes, France, and how a devastating war and unlikely circumstances brought these American soldiers and French villagers together.
Six Days is about the brutality of war and the triumph of the human spirit so rarely brought to comics form. Writer Robert Venditti, whose uncle fought in the Battle of Graignes, partners with award-winning journalist and nonfiction author Kevin Maurer, to bring this incredible story to life. Featuring art by Italian comic book artist Andrea Mutti, Six Days will arrive May 14, 2019, ahead of the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
In the worst mis-drop of the D-Day campaign, a group of soldiers are rattled to the core when they find themselves lost in a small village in France with the enemy lurking near. Miraculously, the citizens of Graignes vote to feed and shelter the soldiers, knowing that the decision would bring them terrible punishment if their efforts were discovered by the Germans. This is the story of what happened during the next six days, ending in a battle that altered the course of the D-Day campaign.
