Burying Cheng

ByDaniel Molitor

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In 1949, Dick Molitor, still a teenager, boarded a troop ship loaded with 5000 other young men and set sail from the Port of Seattle to cross the Pacific Ocean and fight in the Korean War. He returned two and half years later, physically safe, but forever scarred by an event that happened during the very last months of his enlistment. He had done something, something he never talked about, but something that cast a shadow over his life and the lives of his family, a darkness that haunted him to the end of his life.   Daniel Molitor knows this, because he is Dick's son and was with him the day he died. Dick had been having bad dreams for weeks. Someone was watching him, waiting, ready to escort him to the place his strict Catholic upbringing had convinced him he was going. The last word he uttered before dying was, "Hot."   Seven years after his death, Daniel has finally pieced together the story of what happened in Korea and why his father had resigned himself to his ultimate fate. Burying Cheng is the result, a graphic novel in ten chapters based on the long-hidden memorabilia of an ex-soldier, CIA and National Security Agency operative, and lonely old man.
