This book takes place at an organization called S.W.O.R.D, an agency with similar purpose to the Men In Black. The plot takes place over the course of a single day, following Beast and Agent Brand over the course of the former's very hectic first day at work.
The story moves quickly, with many problems popping in the course of these few hours. There are coups, several invasions and worst of all--a visit from Agent Brand's trouble inclined half-brother. There's plenty of humor and the art is, from what I can tell, very good.
My only real complaint is that Beast's new character design, which differs from the design on the cover, took me a while to get used to. He's gone from ape-ish, to feline to this new facial shape which resembles a cross between a horse and a malnourished Scottish terrier.
Overall a very good book, and well worth the money spent because I will likely find myself rereading this over and over again.
