In 1968, the horrors of the Vietnam war invaded every American living room. On February 13th of that year, a new war began, bringing horror…and hunger home to stay. ’68: HOMEFRONT returns the series to the American heartland and the small, sleepy town of Harbinger, Pennsylvania (home of the Heralds) in the first two-issue story arc, “’68: PEECE AND LOVE.” Fresh accident victims sit up on morticians’ slabs, a busload of visiting athletes rises from wet red asphalt to become an army of the damned, and Jenny Love-homecoming queen, cheerleader, and girl next door-prepares to reveal her deepest secret to the world. A secret in the form of leather-clad town bad boy, Johnny Love.
