Reviews

"Trench Dogs is an unrelenting torrent of war machine imagery. Densford's thick lines and dirty color palette in an unending panel layout takes the reader on a train ride through hell." --Charles Forsman (TEOTFW)
..".a nonstop horror show." --Publishers Weekly
"There are a lot of superb interpretations and renderings throughout the book ... It's almost like reading poetry." --History with Mark Bielski (Podcast)
"The burgeoning audience of graphic novel fans, especially the historically literate ones, will certainly be impressed by this book.... The author's and publisher's intentions could not be more honorable.... [We are] happy to recommend Trench Dogs." --Historical Naval Society
"History is becoming a lost art in the modern era and there is always a question of how to pass on an appreciation for military history to a young person. [Trench Dogs is] a graphic novel intended to interest young readers.... The illustrations are vivid but not gratuitous in their depictions of violence and bloodshed, rather seeking to surprise the reader with the brutality of the war through the eyes of those who were there." --Military Heritage
[Trench Dogs is] very cinematic in a way where one scene flows into the next.... It kind of feels like a tracking shot and the concept is really great.... Not something I can think of being done in comics before. --Graphic Policy (YouTube)
"[Trench Dogs] provides a powerful view of this war.... [T]he narrative and artistic choices were solid." --The Fandom Post
"Trench Dogs by Ian Densford is an ambitious graphic novel.... The art is detailed and impressive.... It's beautiful to look at.... This is an impressive attempt to do something different in the comics medium and in so many ways it succeeds." --Graphic Policy
"What a monstrous dream Ian Densford has conceived.... The story itself is incredibly poignant and quite vicious. It is a war story or a story of a war. It does not pretend to do anything other than depict war and war's violent consequences.... [T]here is wisdom in this book in its depiction of human suffering, selfishness, selflessness and survival. Ian Densford steps back and triangulates the brutality of a war that laid waste to an entire continent and more as we stare in horror and amazement hoping we never share their fate, and yet it is difficult not to sympathize and even admire the victims whoever they might be. Death is the great equalizer and, when people encounter it, we can learn a lot from that. Ian Densford has masterfully managed to encapsulate that fact into a comic book." --Comics Workbook
"Ian Densford's graphic watercolors paired with a spattering of onomatopoeic utterings create an unforgiving tale of the 'war to end all wars'.... Very highly recommended for community library graphic novel collections." --The Midwest Book Review
