Graphic Novel of the Month

Berlin - The Seven Dwarves

Berlin - The Seven Dwarves

An abandoned airfield in 1993: Two women exchange a 50-year-old letter.

The year 1943: The crew of the Lancaster S-Snowwhite is dropping bombs on Germany.

Seven men, so young and yet so old before their time. Seven dwarves for old Snow White, and their story of the war. The terror of night missions, the flak, the enemy fighters, the mid-air collisions... Death that strikes anywhere, any time, and the love you seek and latch on to desperately to feel alive while you can...
