    Comics Bulletin - Robert Murray Nov 2, 2007

    Baker understands the insanity of the all-too-realistic world he has created for Special Forces, so the cartoon-style art which is equal parts cheesecake and Sgt. Rock works extremely well in creating a surrealist landscape for this satire. In fact, almost none of the panels show an overview or landscape of a scene. Most of the panels are very close up and personal, giving us not only the emotions (or lack of) for each character, but also allowing the reader to feel the claustrophobic intensity that is warfare. Every decision is a life-or-death one, and the combination of the hands-on reading experience and the steady body count among the group leads to a tone similar to the movie MASH. Baker combines absurdity, wit, violence, and social standing into a comic experience unlike anything youll read this year. If you pick up this first issue of Special Forces, be prepared to commit yourself to the next five installments. Its that good! Read Full Review
