    The ´Nam was Marvel Comics war comic book series. It was written by Doug Murray and later by Don Lomax and illustrated by Michael Golden. It told the tale of 23rd infantry in Vietnam. It was stated that every action and fire fight in series was based on fact. There was also an ambitious time structure in the series: it happend in "real time". When thirty days passed for a reader (the span of one issue), thirty days passed also for the characters in story. The initial goal was to "rotate" the characters back to states after 12 issues - one year - like in the real conflict.

    The ´Nam was a reality based comic, but because it was a Comics Code approved series, issues like drug use were not addressed. And of course no swearing and the soldier slang was cleaned. Despite being reality based, numerous characters would later cross over to mainstream Marvel comics.
