Saigon 1967....

What the fuck??


Oh God no, please don't...


Too late...it's The Nam #41!!!!




Yes, The Nam #41, the 1990 comic which dares to ask: "What if The Avengers had really existed and fought on America's side during the Vietnam war?"

A bit like the Watchmen, only BAD! Yes friends, this is a sick, sick book written by a guy whose heart is clearly in the wrong place.

Right from the get go when Thor smashes a Viet Cong patrol into submission...

Through to the moment when a racist trash-talking Cap skittles out the local militia with his shield...


It's jaw droppingly clear that this is going to be one hell of a politically incorrect ride.


Iron Man blasts commie missiles out of the sky


So that America can get on with bombing the shit out of the Vietnamese


Even Ho Chi Minh is not safe from Earth's Mightiest Heroes...

...and soon finds himself whisked away to Paris to admit the whole war was his fault.


Much like the petrified Ho Chi Minh, my mouth is still gaping at the sheer horror of the whole thing.

As wrong as it all is though, I still want a T-shirt with this panel on the front...



Tell me, does that make me as bad as them?
