In 2009, Sgt. Richard C. Meyer published No Enemy, But Peace, a black and white comic book created with Martin Montiel Luna that recounts the true story of Sgt. Marco Martinez, a former gang member who served as a Marine in Iraq — in the same unit as Meyer, in fact — where in 2003 he rallied his embattled squad and single-handedly attacked an enemy bunker.
Now Meyer has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a digitally colored and expanded version of the story, with the goal of releasing the new edition in time to mark the 10th anniversary of the battle on April 12, 2003. The campaign has entered its final two weeks, raising $2,661 toward its $3,600 goal. Comic Book Resources spoke with Meyer about No Enemy, But Peace shortly after its debut.
