Summary Eisner-award winner Paco Roca reconstructs World War II through the memories of Miguel Ruiz, a member of 'La Nueve,' a company of men that went from fighting against the Franco regime in the Spanish Civil War to battles across Europe and Africa, spurred on by their patriotism and hate for brutal dictatorships. Ruiz's stories are filled with horror and humor but Twists of Fate is much more than a forgotten hero's personal story. It's a timely look into what we remember and why we forget, a reminder that everyone has a tale to tell, and an ode to a generation that stood up to, and beat back, violent fascism.
