Mableton author Wayne Vansant’s new graphic history book “The Red Baron: The Graphic History of Richthofen’s Flying Circus and the Air War in WWI” will be available May 15. In “The Red Baron,” Vansant illustrates the incredible story of Manfred von Richthofen, whose unparalleled piloting prowess as a member of the Imperial German Army Air Service made him a World War I celebrity both in the air and on the ground. In his signature style, Vansant depicts the fearsome intelligence and mid-flight awareness that would earn Richthofen 80 documented air combat victories over the Western Front in the halcyon days of military aviation.

Vansant, who served in the U.S. Navy during Vietnam, was the primary artist for Marvel’s “The ’Nam” for more than five years and has since written and illustrated many other historically accurate books.
