    For as much as I liked The Cape I did not like this preuel The story shows us what happened to the boys' dad in Vietnam and how he received the power of flight that later made its way into Eric's cape The story just doesn't explain enough to me There are too many subplots that are left hanging Where did this witch doctor come from? I've never heard of magic in a Vietnam setting Why is there an American born Vietnamese kid in the village? It's never explained why the dad brought him here Overall it just felt like a way to bilk readers out of a few bucks after the success of The Cape

    3Great artwork but a book that is not a grand origin You don't need to read this book it only tells of the time before the main storyline Joe Hill attempts to create a beginning to The Cape series but it never reaches the heights of the first book Why the 3?Joe Hill was still finding his feet in the medium and even the first volume of Locke and Key had slight missteps This is not an essential book to read and because Joe Hill ended the storyline in the original he had to invent stories to keep the series alive This could've been good if it wasn't so muddled

    This review can also be found on my blog Also includes review for the original The CapeThis story was an interesting preuel to The Cape We are transported back to the Vietnam War to explain how Eric’s cape came to have powers First we meet Eric and Nick as even younger children with their mother reading their father’s letters from Vietnam Their father Cory is a captain and is a medevac helicopter pilot We learn he is MIA after his helicopter crashes in the jungleWe are shown how Cory makes it out of the crash alive but is uickly captured by the Viet Cong Forced into a cage he is later joined by a tattooed witch tribesman that the soldiers found living in the jungle The two men are pitted against one another by the cruel captors with the intent for only one to survive Cory is shocked when the mystical man begins to levitate and despite the other man not seeming to be evil Cory kills him so he can survive the contest Before the tribesman dies he touches Cory’s army patches on his shirt and imparts his power to him This begs the uestion what’s the story behind the magical man? Unfortunately we never learn With this new found power Cory is able to escape his captors but wants revenge He comes back determined to kill all the men in the Viet Cong encampment Instead of using his powers to truly leave and return to his family Cory is determined to inflict as much pain on others as he can and to no one’s surprise it proves to be his downfall Later another soldier finds some remains of Cory that includes the patch that is mailed back to his wife She sews it on Eric’s cape to remember his father not knowing that is is infused with power and rageThe art is again excellent and very evocative of the era Despite much of the story taking place in the jungle little to no green is used Instead the camp is a dull brown which I think embodies the loss of hope Oranges and reds are used liberally in the Vietnam narrative with the colors symbolizing to me the phrase “war is hell” The colors definitely influenced my interpretation of the story which was melancholy and grim You knew as a preuel this story would not end well and it did not disappoint on that regard

    Another fun graphic novel acting as preuel to “The Cape” a short story published in Joe Hill’s first book release titled “20th Century Ghosts” published in 2005 Published in 2011 “The Cape 1969” was co written with Jason Ciaramella and illustrated by Zach Howard collaborators of the original comic I purchased the hardcover edition printed by IDW Publishing in 2013 The boards are nice and thick the spine is tight and sturdy the pages are crisp with a smooth texture and the graphic designer inlays on the cover really pop next to the dark colored matte finish Like all of IDW’s Joe Hill graphic novels the hardcover version is solid and impressive looking“The Cape 1969” is about the origin of how the cape inherited the power of flight and evil To tell this tale Joe Hill and company takes you back to 1969 into the jungles of Vietnam Serving as a Medevac helicopter pilot for the US Army Captain Chase Eric’s father and his crew are shot down from their chopper by the Vietcong and ultimately become prisoners of war During their brief incarceration they come upon the presence of a witch who possesses powers beyond that of man A transfer of this power is given to Captain Chase against his will and Chase becomes reborn and filled with a murderous rage and revengeful hate can you blame him?Like the first book “The Cape 1969” was great and action packed from start to finish Although it was a bit shorter than the first book this preuel delivers and was completely relevant if “The Cape” had any plans of becoming a series in the futureAt first I was not fond of the idea of the story incorporating the likes of an evil tattooed witch lurking among the jungle trees But after its capture I realized the importance of that characterThe book’s artwork is gruesome with lots of blood splattering and body parts being blown apart My pulse was definitely elevated with excitement throughout my reading session I absolutely can’t wait for the third book in the series “The Cape Fallen” which is expected to be released before the end of the yearFINAL VERDICT I give this book 4 out of 5 stars I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Joe Hill’s darker stuff and enjoyed “The Cape” I’m not going to say it was better or worse but different Once again I will warn parents This comic series and really all Joe Hill graphic novels in general are not for kids Stick with Marvel

    I enjoyed The Cape1969 It's a preuel to The Cape based on a short story by Joe Hill and it sort of answers 'some' of the uestions readers had after finishing the original comics Great art colors and writing and with some great pacing My only real complaint is that this preuel kind of needs a preuel of it's own to fully explain the origin of the 'what made the cape special' Still a great read and leaves me wanting in a good way

    That was TERRIBLE What do you mean it ended like that? I want I have so many uestions This was a pretty good book Set during the Vietnam war it tells the story of a soldier who is captured by the Vietnamese And somehow acuires the mysterious ability to fly The same ability that his skin inexplicably has And a magic witch man I want to know how that works In terms of story telling and explanations we get almost nothing The whole father son dynamic is interesting when placed in this setting but really it wasn't what I found most interesting I wanted to know about the magic So I'm very disappointed that I didn't find out In terms of art this book is great I particularly loved the colour palette The oranges and reds work so well They give the impression that this place is hell on earth And I also wonder if the abundance of orange was a nod to Agent Orange the chemical used during the war Either way the art works I just wish the story did too

    Nice artwork and I like the Vietnam theme I don't mind a bit of swearing in my comics Graphic novels but this had way too much Swearing is often used to cover up a lack of meaningful dialogue and good storytelling i believe that is certainly the case in 'The cape' Another pet peeve of mine is when a major event goes unexplained as occurs in this story why did the witch doctor willingly force his own death? And why did the main character not see that the witch doctor was potentially saving him from their predicament? I felt this had a lot of potential and sad to see it wasted


  9. Chang Chang says:

    The characters were one dimensional especially the villainThe plot was uninspired especially since the protagonist had the power to fly It didn't work as a superhero story a war story or a revenge story

    Preferred the first one but still ok wish the story of the witch man had been developed
