Publisher Dead Reckoning presents another true story of military history. Smedley Butler, one of the most decorated Marines of all time, is a man in his element as he recalls his toughest scrapes to an eager audience of World War I veterans, who we discover have a few war stories of their own. Coming from a background of privilege, he became a Marine to prove his worth. Through conflicts like the Philippine-American War, the Boxer Rebellion, the Banana Wars, and the War to End All Wars, he helped define what the Marine Corps is today.

The narrative in Smedley begins in the Summer of 1932. Butler is retired from the Marines and has lost his bid to be a Pennsylvania senator. When he is invited to speak at the Bonus Army encampment in Washington D.C., he arrives early to mingle with the other veterans, who press him for stories about his legendary exploits. How did he win his Medals of Honor? What was it like in China? Smedley humbly recalls his toughest scrapes and his extraordinary good luck to an eager audience of World War I veterans. He shows how dicipline, audacity, and determination could mean the difference between success in battle, or ending up dead in the sand.

Jeff McComsey is an American writer/illustrator working in comics for the past ten years. He is also editor in chief of the New York Times Best Selling historical zombie anthology FUBAR now into its sixth volume. Jeff and his family reside in the quaintly hip city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania where he also teaches the occasional class at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design.
