A WAR IS A DIFFICULT THING TO KILL
The Second World War is almost over, but no one seems to have told the Germans – as Royal Air Force pilot Jamie McKenzie finds out when he’s assigned to deadly shipping strikes along the enemy coast.
Flying the Mosquito fighter-bomber against heavily armed targets is dangerous enough at the best of times, but after incurring the wrath of his vengeful commanding officer, Jamie is assigned the most unpopular navigator in the unit – not to mention the least reliable aircraft. Worse still, the commander’s sights are firmly set on Jamie’s beautiful young wife, Beth.
Writer GARTH ENNIS (A WALK THROUGH HELL, Preacher, The Boys) and artist KEITH BURNS (War Stories) reunite after the success of their series Johnny Red, presenting another tale of World War Two aerial combat: featuring skies black with flak and enemy fighters, nail-biting low-level action, and the dark humor of men whose lives can be snatched away at any second… OUT OF THE BLUE.
72 pages of gripping action, adventure and aerial combat presented in full color on the finest paper stock and in the popular oversized European hardcover format.
Part of a distinctive collection of compelling stories crafted by master storytellers and told in the way they were meant to be told.
Original Graphic Novels from AfterShock.

OUT OF THE BLUE, VOL. 2
The second and final volume of Garth Ennis’ oversized hardcover original graphic novel series.
Jamie McKenzie’s fighter-bomber strike missions against the Germans get even deadlier, but his ongoing feud with his own commanding officer is no picnic either. His loving wife Beth provides a surprise or two of her own – but Jamie soon finds that there are those who’ve paid a steeper price than himself in the battle with Hitler’s Reich. The stage is set for a showdown high above the frozen fjords of Norway, as a horde of Nazi fighters lie in wait for the RAF Mosquito squadrons.
