It is addictive and brutal -- a perfect antidote to the flag-waving Fox News broadcasts of the War on Terror." -- CHICAGO SUN TIMES "The dramatic images recall the nightly news, and the stories of war-zone life ring true. Grade: A-" -- ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY "Burchielli's outstanding art really sells the story by intensifying familiar urban grunge into a Third World-like battle zone... This book is a disturbing, challenging success." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "Wood's captivating series... combines the thrill of a summer blockbuster with the dire realities of war and dose of social/political commentary. Must-see series!" -- USA TODAY
