Arrowsmith is a fantasy comic book by writer Kurt Busiek and penciller Carlos Pacheco, published by Wildstorm's Cliffhanger imprint. It first premiered as a six-issue miniseries in 2003.


The series is set in an alternate history Earth in which the United States of America is actually the United States of Columbia, magic is real, and the First World War is fought with and by dragons, spells, vampires and all other kinds of magical weapons and beings.

The story follows the protagonist, Fletcher Arrowsmith, as he joins the war effort on the side of the Allies, gets taught the rudiments of sorcery and engages in some brutal battles with the enemy Prussians.

Publication history

The original limited series ran for six issues in 2003 and was collected in the trade paperback Arrowsmith, Book 1: So Smart in Their Fine Uniforms (ISBN 1-4012-0299-3) in 2004.

In 2006 Busiek stated that he and Pacheco hope to produce more Arrowsmith projects.[1] Busiek and Pacheco are working on Arrowsmith: Far From the Fields We Know, an illustrated prose novel that focuses on Fletcher Arrowsmith in a Prussian prison on a secret mission for the Allies.[2]
