Comics iconoclast Rick Veitch
(Swamp Thing, Can't Get No) writes
and pencils a subversive new ongoing series, joined by inker Gary Erskine (The Filth).
Comedy collides head on with tragedy when a New Jersey
National Guard unit is deployed indefinitely to a never-ending series of wars
in the Middle East. These are citizen soldiers
— kids fresh out of high school shoulder-to-shoulder with middle-aged corporate
manager. To motivate them, a modernized military has gone into full,
take-no-prisoners marketing mode.
Equal parts blistering battle action, sensuous soap
opera and pitch-black satire in the vein of Preacher
and Transmetropolitan, Army@Love is
unlike anything Veitch — or any other comics creator — has ever attempted. And
you won't believe your eyes when you see what it takes to become a member of
The Hot Zone Club! Written by Rick Veitch, with artwork from Rick Veitch
and Gary Erskine; collects Army@Love #1
