This is amazing.
Do you know if this ever got translated because this is exactly the kind of humor I like.

I know for sure that the comic Sturmtruppen has been translated in German so an English translation seems probable, about the current availability of this strip abroad I wouldn’t know…

Yeah the comic strip is from 1973 while the movie is from 1971, it’s probably a callback.

Ad Astra Scipio to Hannibal is a Japanese manga set during the 2nd Punic War that portrays the rivalry between the two generals, despite its origins I find this read quite accurate and respectful of the actual history, it also shows lesser known protagonists and aspects of this long war, expecially the part after Cannae.
