After the assassination of a U.S. President, the conspirators turn their sights on all who helped him get into power. By this, they mean to kill everyone who helped him ascend to the presidency-including the ordinary citizens who elected him, essentially plunging the entire country into civil war. Meanwhile, the vice president, one of the few survivors of the executive branch, struggles to prevent the nation from descending into chaos.

    The Recount #1 is a hell of a debut. The subject might be a bit “too real” but the execution is done so well it's difficult to not be entertained. The comic is a must-get for those that enjoy political thrillers and I'm excited to see where the series goes from here. It's a shocking start of a gutsy series that's out at both the right and wrong time. Read Full Review

    The Recount offers a unique narrative that properly captures the emotive force that Americans are experiencing as a result of the recent elections, and hones in on the anger that comes as a result of people feeling disenfranchised from the institutions they uphold. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - Carlos Melgarejo Nov 22, 2020

    With the artwork, the style here fits nicely into the narrative given, giving us a scratchy feel, sketch-like qualities in some panels that really help bring the story to life. This new series, wherever it chooses to go from here. I hope that you can enjoy it for what it is. A nightmare turned into reality. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Megan Peters Nov 12, 2020

    It leaves enough questions unanswered in its first chapter to keep fans coming back for more if they aren't warded away by its intense action and ideology. Read Full Review
