If you're only reading Marvel and DC comics I would recommend Queen and Country as a step outside your comfort zone. Well written characters, intrigue, drama and espionage. There are consequences for the characters, which is refreshing if you're used to reading comics that rarely shake up the status quo. The stories are well researched, and although released back in 2001 still have a political relevance.
A decent price, for a substantial read. Give it a try.

Format: Paperback
I like graphic storytelling and I like a lot of espionage stories (be they fiction, film, nonfiction), so when the four-volume collection came out, I figured it was high time I sample this series. This first volume collects three stories about the British SIS (Special Intelligence Service, aka MI6). In "Operation: Broken Ground" (illustrated by Steve Rolston) an agent is sent to Kosovo to assassinate a Russian arms dealer. In "Operation: Morningstar" (illustrated by several artists) an agent is sent to Taliban-controlled Afghanistan to retrieve a list of pro-Western contacts that are in danger of falling into the wrong hands. In "Operation: Crystal Ball" (illustrated by Leandro Fernandez) agents are sent to disrupt an al-Qaeda plot to set off a WMD at the 2002 World Cup in Japan.

The focus of the books is not on the "action" of each operation (although there's enough of that to keep things lively), but on the covert ops team and their London handlers. In trying to be as realistic as reasonable, a great deal of time is spent on various bureaucratic argy bargy concerning the operations. Lots of venomous bureaucrats with barely contained anger and loathing with each other (plus the inevitable involvement of the CIA station chief in London). As realistic as this may be, the various suits snarling at each other gets old, and there's altogether too much of it. Somewhat better and more interesting is the limited glimpses we get into the non-work side of some of agents, especially Tara Chace, who probably has the most page-time of any character, as she battles her inner demons.

When it comes to the action, it's generally drawn and thought through pretty well -- except when it isn't.

Awesome example of Greg Rucka storytelling. Artwork varies in all it's BW authenticity. Story focuses on a female agent in British Secret service. Bit more gritty a realistic than bond in someways, a bit more fantastical in others. I like the level of political interest.

I struggled with Greg Rucka's Queen And Country, truth be told.

I can't fault the execution of these stories. They're well researched, capably written, and there's a good sense of ongoing continuity between the volumes... but to be honest, I found it all rather boring.

I'd hoped the series might repeat the kind of tense, edgy and suspenseful atmosphere in Greg Rucka's Whiteout series. Instead, this all felt a little turgid and straight-ahead by comparison.

I've no doubt that other readers will get a varying degree of mileage out of the books, though. It just clearly wasn't for me. Be aware of what you're getting into before you dip into these books.
