World War II.
D-day. Paratrooper Lt. Roy Sterling is parachuting behind enemy lines in France among a hail of gunfire when he is grazed by a German bullet. Things look grim until the mysterious and beautiful Calypso finds him.
Calypso is a vignette story about love and duty by Russell Lissau with art by MP Mann available today in digital format from Comixology. The writing is paced nicely, giving each beat time to sink in, but packing in a complete and full arc in a short amount of pages. The art matches quite well with the story too, the watercolors muted pallette and character designs suggest time in a place that locks the story firmly in its 1940's vintage.
One of the things I really like about this story is reminds me of the value and enjoyment I get out of short stories, ones that you can internalize quickly, and read multiple times looking for detail and nuance that you missed the first time through. For 99¢ (at time of writing) you get a full story, and a story that Is well told in comics.
