American Century Vol. 01: Scars and Stripes SC

AMERICAN CENTURY VOL. 1: SCARS & STRIPES SC (Howard Chaykin & David Tischman/Marc Laming/John Stokes) Collects issues #1-4. It's 1950, and Harry Block, a fighter jock who distinguished himself in the skies over Europe in World War II, is recalled to active duty in Korea. This is the last straw in a haystack of disappointments, grinding the onetime hero into the ground, until Harry decides to bail on the president's offer, his career and his keeping up-with-the-Joneses suburban life. He hijacks a plane, reinvents himself as Harry Kraft, and sets out to live an extraordinary new life of action and adventure. Harry fetches up in the tropical heat of Guatemala, a sleepy dictatorship under the thumb of the American U.S. Fruit Corporation and run by a president besieged by rumblings of popular uprisings and military coups. Harry's content to fly cargo planes for small-time smugglers and enjoy the local attractions, but he can't escape the land he fled from. 96 pp. MR.
