LOS ANGELES 9/15/2022 – Top Cow gives voice to veterans through sequential storytelling in the upcoming Soldier Stories. This anthology is slated for release Veterans Day week, honoring veterans, and will include contributions from creators Brian Anthony (USA), Jalysa Conway (UAF), Megan Ferrell Burke (USMC) and the Reverend William J. Bellamy (ARNG).
“When Ken Pisani first approached us with the idea of ​​publishing an anthology of stories written by returning veterans, we jumped at the chance,” said Matt Hawkins (Tithe, Postal) , president of Top Cow Productions.


Ken Pisani (AMP’D), who is a Los Angeles Times bestselling author essential to the organization and production of this anthology, added, “As a longtime member of the Writers Guild of America (WGA ) West, helping new and underrepresented voices tell their stories has always been important to me. Working with military veterans provided me with another opportunity to do so, and I was fortunate to find these talented veterans with stories to tell, turning their experiences into entertaining genre tales that entertain and enlighten. We are all grateful to have found an immediate and willing partner in Top Cow.

These stories will allow readers to briefly step into the shoes of the men and women who bravely served and witness enhanced versions of the sacrifices they made during their military service.

“We salute their bravery and thank them for their service. Support veterans and pick up this book and share their stories,” Hawkins added.

Soldiers’ stories presents four compelling accounts of military conflict, all written by veterans who served from the Vietnam era to Afghanistan. These first-person accounts of real wars have been reimagined in a variety of genres, from science fiction to horror to personal memoir. What’s it like waiting for a chemical attack? How does it feel to abandon your allies? In a world of push-button warfare, has killing become too easy? How do you carry on when the war is over but the struggle isn’t? These are personal stories, captivating stories, stories that will haunt and surprise you. Because every soldier has a story.
