Beginning a 2-issue arc that will introduce American audiences to the work of Democratic Republic of Congo artist Pat Masioni. Accompanied by a former child soldier, the Unknown Soldier begins a journey across the most intensive expanse of the war zone Moses has experienced yet. But what's on the other side for these two? Redemption for their killings – or damnation?

    If while reading this review, you've been thinking to yourself that Unknown Soldier sounds like a depressing book, it could certainly be interpreted as such. How do you recommend a book like this? Oh yeah, dude, you should totally check out Unknown Soldier, it'll crush your soul. That doesn't sound like a ringing recommendation, but as I read this issue the room seemed to darken and when I finished it I wanted to run home and hug my wife and loved ones. It is uncompromising but, in stark contrast, makes seemingly impossible subjects accessible. For that alone it is worth picking up. Read Full Review
