Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem #2Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem #2
Written by Steve Niles
Illustrated by Dave Watcher

Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: July 10, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Steve Niles and Dave Watcher pack even more punch into Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem #2 than they did with their breathtaking series launch. This second installment of the three-issue special from Dark Horse gets right down to business with the imminent threat of the German army swarming young Noah’s village in search of the Allied pilot who crash-landed there in issue one, and the story grips the reader tightly until the very last page.

The village is torn between holding their ground or fleeing in hopes of reaching the border before the Germans catch up to them on the road. Noah’s grandfather insists that they stay, keeping the ace up his sleeve that he has a magical backup plan in case things go sour, and the rest of the townspeople reluctantly agree.

Two enemy scouts arrive on a reconnaissance mission and begin searching barns for the missing pilot. When they find him, the pilot’s brash actions result in everything the villagers had hoped to prevent.

Fans of Hellboy, B.P.R.D. Secret Origins, and FUBAR should definitely straighten up and pay attention! The latest addition to the horror-and-mythology-meet-WW2 family – and arguably the most beautifully rendered of the lot – is Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem from Dark Horse Comics.

Set in Poland just before the German invasion, the story unfolds around a Jewish boy named Noah who watches all of the men in his village — including his own father — march off to join the Allied forces in an attempt to hold back the enemy. Noah stays behind with his grandparents and has only the regular radio broadcasts to keep him informed of the battles that are drawing closer every day to the peaceful countryside he calls home.

After the long wait for his father’s return to the village with no word of his condition, Noah and his grandfather brace themselves for news of his death. This moment of emotional bonding between the boy and the old man quickly takes a turn when an Allied fighter plane roars overhead and crashes just outside the boundaries of their village.
