We have now begun an archive of all kinds of Light and Darkness War stuff, including material from the development of the project, articles from magazines and newspapers, letters-to-the-editor, essays, poems, tracts, polemics, and miscellaneous screeds…you name it.
You can get to the library from the link bar atop this page. Or you can go directly to our first offering: A long article about The Light and Darkness War published in Amazing Heroes magazine. The article is by Dana Marie Andra writing as Mark Burbey:
The Light and Darkness War — the full story
Review by Anthony Esmond on Downthetubes.net ~
“This is the sort of story that I find I can’t look away from and ties my stomach in a knot waiting for the next panel. Ever since Dorothy finds herself in the Land of Oz or John Carter falls onto the planet Mars I have been shouting ‘STAY THERE!!! DON’T COME HOME!!!’ Places so different and exotic that the protagonist shouldn’t even consider returning home. Yet it is home they search for, over and over again.
“The Light and Darkness War uses these thoughts and spins them on you. They are used to counterpoint the horrors of war that are as relevant today as they were in the Atomic War fearing 1980s. We see the reality of PTSD on soldiers returning home. Lazarus himself is a bitter, tormented, short-tempered man. His spirit and heart are broken, his dignity taken from him. He dreams of his old friends, lost to him, to a place he wishes he had been taken….”
You are looking at the new Light and Darkness War website!
Here you will find info and images, straight from the archives of the creators of The Light and Darkness War — writer Tom Veitch & artist Cam Kennedy.
Photos and bios of the artist and writer will also be featured, as well as bibliographies of their published work.
Once the site is constructed and operating to our satisfaction, there will be a regular stream of posts and comments, news and updates, and previews of forthcoming L&DWar projects.
Stay tuned, folks — this is going to be fun.
