Writer: Mark Sable
At first glance, just flipping through the pages, I was not very impressed with the artwork. It was a bit gritty and not as well defined as I generally prefer to have in the comics I read. However, as I actually started to read through the book, the art somewhat grew on me, and I began to see how well the style of art fit the story that was being told.
The story was very well written, and helps bring you in to some of the intensity and drama that soldiers today in Iraq and Afghanistan are experiencing today. With the suicide bomber worries, and all the ins and outs of working with the local military and law enforcement factions, we can see a bit what these men and women are experiencing overseas in our “war on terror”. We see the trust issues between these groups, and between the soldiers themselves, as there are some differences of opinion as to what the best way to deal with the locals and the terrorists is.
The story leads up to a situation very similar to how the book starts with a slight twist that leads into the rest of the series. I don’t want to give away too much, but the one SPOILER I will give is that if you enjoy The Walking Dead, it is likely that you will enjoy this series.
