Synopsis

Synopsis

 
The year is 1944. As Allied forces fight the enemy on Europe’s war-torn beaches, another battle begins in a child’s bedroom in Brooklyn. When the nightmarish Boogeyman snatches a boy and takes him to the realm of the Dark, the child’s playthings, led by the toy soldier known as the Colonel, band together to stage a daring rescue. On their perilous mission they will confront the boy’s bitter and forgotten toys, as well as betrayal in their own ranks. Can they save the boy from the forces of evil, or will they all perish in the process? The Stuff of Legend is a haunting and ultimately redemptive tale of loyalty, camaraderie, and perseverance.

This edition includes a brand-new story featuring the Colonel’s war journal, maps, sketches, and other original material!

“This is some of the loveliest artwork I’ve seen in a comic book in a long, long time, and a darkly beautiful story to boot.”—Brian K. Vaughan, author of Y: The Last Man

“I love it! It’s a real page-turner. Economical, effective storytelling, with story and art complimenting each other perfectly and hinting at something darker. Very involving.”—Frank Quitely, author of All Star Superman
