Deals with the devil rarely go right, but in Baghdad, the wrong deal could get lots of people killed. Just as Sofia gets close to Abu Rahim, the man who killed Chris' trainee and blew up her car, Chris starts to suspect Bob, the man who led them to Abu Rahim, isn't exactly trustworthy himself.

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Sep 14, 2016

    When this book started it did feel like you were thrown in and forced to find your own understanding of what was taking place. You learn about theintricacies of the cultural politics as the story progresses causing things to make more sense issue by issue. Now that we are in issue ten everything is coming together bit by bit, like that puzzle that slowly revels the beautiful imagery it holds. This issue is full of those ah ha moments along with a heavy dose of nail biting tension. The only negative aspect of this book I could think of is having to wait anothermonth for the next issue.If you are a fan of comics or storytelling in general and you are not reading this series I implore you to rectify that as soon as possible.

    While King's plot brings a remarkable level of realism, Gerads work on both colors and arts is kind of mind-blowing. I can't think of anything else out there to compare it too, because in my eyes, he stands alone right now. Read Full Review

    What is the end game for every one? We have just a few more issues to go to find out in what is not just one of the best comics on the market, but also one of the best discussions of the US occupation of Iraq from someone that was there. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Sep 7, 2016

    There are no Space Cops nor Amazons. There are no aliens nor robots. Those things are great and it is good they are out there. I am going to jump into some serious robot from Detroit action right now. However, this book is powerful. It is well written. It is tense. It is real. If I were teaching modern World History, I would use this series. Issue 10, ends with the line “Where were the terrorists?” The room is full of dead Iraqis with Bob's men standing around them wearing night vision goggles. The answer to that, is in the question and it is on the last page. If you have not read this yet, start from the beginning and get caught up. You have a month before issue 11 comes out.

    Comic Bastards - Mike Badilla Sep 7, 2016

    Ultimately this book was a struggle as there was no recap page, which lead me to be confused during the entire book. The art was enjoyable and fitting, and the story seems like it could be great, but I'll wait for the trades to find out. Read Full Review
