As the topic moved on to new and bold directions for some our favorite established characters, he told me one of the best story that he had read in a while was an artist fan comic about Spider-man serving in the Vietnam War. That fan comic was by Orc Stain creator James Stokoe, Spider-'Nam, which is only about five pages long. This is a testament to how good this story is, after those few pages I would love to read this story as a full fledge graphic novel.
Stokoe's artwork is very detailed, it captures the mood perfectly. The premise of having Peter writing letter back to his aunt chronicling his experience is a great vehicle for storytelling. To read the black and white version of the comic here and you'll find some finished color pages on Stokoe's blog Orc Stain, it's about 2/3 of the way down on the February 11th post. Be sure to check more of Stokoe's work on the blog the level of detail in his drawings are mind blowing.
