The Lonestar File

Well now, we have a bit of a problem: it's pretty clear that the file Hana's reading is called "The Lonestar File" (given the Texas codenames). However, it's standard to redirect the title of the GN sans namespace. I think we're going to have to make an exception this time because the article for the file really ought to be called Lonestar File. Of course, we also need a The Lonestar File (disambig) and a See Also link on probably both the file and the GN. We'll also need to make War Buddies into a disambig page a la Wireless (disambig).--Hardvice (talk) 06:28, 20 March 2007 (EDT)

  • True dat. We'll also need to go back and update all the (War Buddies) cites and links ... ugh. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:38, 20 March 2007 (EDT)
    • Done. Not too bad, really.--Hardvice (talk) 06:55, 20 March 2007 (EDT)
      • Okay, so it's taken care of right now, but I just want to be explicit for those who might be reading. The Lonestar File links to the graphic novel page; Lonestar File links to the file Hana reads. Okay, now we're good. :) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:03, 20 March 2007 (EDT)

Comic Style

I noticed that this GN's style was very different from the other GNs. I think it may have been a deliberate nod to War Comics genre similar to Sgt. Rock or Easy Company. Most of the other GNs appear to be super-hero genre comics. Can we identify other comic book genres in the other GNs? --AverageMan 17:41, 20 March 2007 (EDT)
Here is a list of comic genres. --AverageMan 17:43, 20 March 2007 (EDT)
I guess Turning Point and Road Kill could be considered a crime comic. I think The Crane has the most unusual format of all, but I can't classify it. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:58, 20 March 2007 (EDT)

Series Bars for GN Series?

  • Just throwing it out there. I think it would work well for this one, less well for Wireless, and be practically useless for HDYSAEM?--Hardvice (talk) 02:38, 21 March 2007 (EDT)
    • Heck, we're making excepting for this one by calling it something different, so why not? — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 07:17, 21 March 2007 (EDT)
      • Well, it said two of six, so makes sense to me.--Bob 11:27, 21 March 2007 (EDT)
        • The exception is that we're not calling it by its full name: "Graphic Novel:War Buddies:Unknown Soldiers" or even "Graphic Novel:War Buddies:Unknown Soldiers, Part 2 of Six". Yeah, ya gotta take some liberties. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:30, 21 March 2007 (EDT)


I don't really see where there is heroism in this issue. Austin doesn't take risks when he heals Dallas since the sniper appears to be dead. Remember, Austin said : "Clear". --FrenchFlo(talk)(contribs) 11:14, 25 March 2007 (EDT)

  • Right, but the fact that 5 men would give up their names and identifications, that four would be shot, and three would die--that's pretty heroic if you ask me. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:13, 25 March 2007 (EDT)
    • Well it's a point of view, for me it's just facts. Heroism is a way to do things not to suffer them (been shot doesn't make someone a heroe, just a victim :p) but that's no big deal and let's says it's Heroism we have here hehe :) --FrenchFlo(talk)(contribs) 14:17, 25 March 2007 (EDT)

As I walked out in the streets of Loredo...

  • Considering it's called the Lone Star file, and Texas is the Lone Star state, and all of the other soldiers are named after Texas cities, and Laredo is a well-known Texas city, does anybody else feel that noting the existence of Loredo, Spain seems like a bit of a non-sequitur? If we're not implying they intentionally code-named one soldier after a city in Spain, even though the mission and all the other soldiers are named after Texas stuff, then it's completely out of left field, and if we are implying that ... well, then we're ignoring that the graphic novel guys don't spell all that well, aren't we?--Hardvice (talk) 07:27, 27 March 2007 (EDT)
    • Also, consider that this account was supposed to be a Pentagon file written by Dallas. He could have mis-spelled Laredo. --AverageMan 08:42, 27 March 2007 (EDT)
      • Great point. Yes, it's odd to put anything that's not about the place where the stars at night are big and bright. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:55, 27 March 2007 (EDT)
