The Cold War threatens to heat up quickly as world leaders on both sides of the Iron Curtain begin pushing for armed conflict. But only a select few know that the ones rattling their sabers are in fact identical doppelgangers who have replaced the real leaders. Can veteran spy Operator 5 and new recruit Operative 1001 uncover who is behind these replacements, and what their agenda might be, before it's too late?

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Oct 2, 2013

    The only downside to this quick pace and all-plot style is there is not much in terms of character development. Sure, you do have an understanding of who people are and why they do things, but you don't know their backstories or history outside of vague hints. You like them, but you don't feel fully attached to them. You probably would need to read the comics they star in to get the most out of them in that department. Read Full Review

    Codename Action is a great series that gives us the espionage action of James Bond with a great pulp twist. Read Full Review

    Codename: Action #2is a great continuation of the story, withat least three different (yet linked) plot / sub-plot lines going on at any moment. So far it is definitely worth investing in – and as we end on another (more subtle, yet still literal) cliffhanger, I am very much looking forward to how everything fits together as we head towards the half way point in the mini-series.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 16, 2013

    Issue #2 once again captures the feel of a cold war spy tale that also gives us an unexpected cameo from the Green Hornet and Kato that plays on larger themes of the comic but still seems a bit out of place. Worth a look. Read Full Review
