Apocalypse Meow vol. 1 (of 3) by Motofumi Kobayashi
TPB, 5 x 7 7/16, 146 pages
What?! Rabbits are fighting in the Vietnam War?! That’s right—the characters of this pseudo-historical account of the Vietnam War are rabbits, cats, and other animals representing various nationalities involved in the war. It’s the story of the life and adventures of the Special Operations unit lead by Sergeant “Perky” Perkins. The reader will experience and feel the danger and life or death excitement of the battlefield alongside Perky and his rabbits as they face terrible battles in the jungles of Vietnam. A remarkable synthesis of gritty realism and fable-like characters. Apocalypse Meow is a unique masterpiece!

And then they eat it. Because rabbits do that.
I have one of the original japanese mangas of this, and I think its awesome that they're translating it.
One thing though... "Apocalypse Meow"? I understand that they can't use the original name, but PLEASE ask them not to use that title: Pun names suck, period - even moreso when the subject matter of the book is meant to be taken seriously.
