This Artist Brings War To Life With Pen, Paper, And Painstaking Detail

From meticulously illustrated T-34 Tiger tanks, to carefully penned uniforms, Wayne Vansant approaches his craft with the care of an artist — and he should, he is one. The 65-year-old comic book writer and illustrator is probably best known for his work on the Marvel war comic “The ‘Nam,” but he has other art and comic projects that are set on the Eastern Front, in Normandy, and even Korea.

Kevin Knodell from War is Boring writes about Vansant’s career, what drove him, and what he’s working on now.
