DC >> Batman Death of Innocence The Horror of Landmines ( Volume 1)  
by DC
In "Batman: Death Of Innocents", the Dark Knight takes on the tragic horror of landmines and finds himself in the unusual position of being relatively helpless against the scale of the problem himself. That scale is highlighted in the forward by Senator ('real-life', not DC Universe) Patrick Leahy and the afterword articles by (again, from 'our' world) Col. David H. Hackworth [US Army], Jody Williams [Vietnam Veterans Of America Foundation, International Campaign To Ban Landmines] and Jerry White [Co-Director, Landmine Survivors Network], which give background information on the tens of millions of landmines deployed around the world, often active for decades after their war is over, and killing or maiming many, many more non-combatants (Very often children) than whatever enemy the side that laid them in the first place intended them for use against (unless, of course, their intended target Was the civilian populace, which has been the case with both terrorist organizations and government dictatorships), and the tens of thousands total (soldiers, civilians, aid workers, anyone or anything you can think of) killed every year. I should point out that the comic itself does not take a stand as 'for' or 'against' the justifications or morality of any given war, using instead the fictitious country of Kravia as the main ground for the story; it instead focuses on the horrendously indiscriminate killing of landmines against anything that moves, and that, as Col. Hackworth notes, "can't tell a tank from a tricycle".
