Brian K. Vaughan is one constant in my world. His work consistently outshines other things on the shelves because his fearless take on writing. While I'm sure this story is controversial here in the States, it was an amazing story. Its such a good tale, I don't know why it's limited to just the six issues. This could be another 60+ issue epic told from multiple points of view. I'm still gonna hope for more. Steve Skroce's art has improved so much since his Amazing Spider-Man days and he was good then. Great read!
Science fiction tale about the USA's war against Canada After the US (after Canada's water supply) retaliate against a Canadian attack, a group of freedom fighters take on the invaders. There are flashbacks about how Amber ended up in their party. The comic collection concentrates on the various characters as the fight against the US military continues. Interesting and well-written, this collection is well worth a look. It's nicely illustrated as well by Steve Skroce. Highly recommended.
