Aaron, Stewart’s ‘The Other Side’ gets deluxe hardcover treatment

Image Comics will release a new collection of the Eisner-nominated miniseries in July.

Image Comics will publish Jason Aaron and Cameron Stewart’s Eisner-nominated miniseries The Other Side as a deluxe hardcover “brimming with extras” in July.

“I’ve never worked harder on a comic than I did on this,” Aaron said in a statement. “And if I hadn’t, I don’t know where I’d be today. This book gave me a career. And in these pages, Cameron and Dave McCaig gave us all some of the most intense and haunting visuals the war comic genre has ever seen.”

Originally published by Vertigo in 2006, The Other Side tells the story of two soldiers on opposing sides during the Vietnam War. Per the release, this deluxe edition will also include extras like Cameron Stewart’s pictures, drawings and journal entries from his preliminary research trip to Vietnam.

“Working on this book was one of the highlights of both my career and my life so far, and I’m thrilled for it to be re-released in this deluxe edition,” Stewart said in a statement. “I think it remains as visceral and powerful today as it did a decade ago.”

The hardcover arrives July 26 in comic shops and Aug. 1 in bookstores.
