5.0 out of 5 stars An amusing yet also affecting story of a gruff but lovable 60 odd year old indestructible man, 12 Sept. 2008

This review is from: Brit Volume 1: Old Soldier: Old Soldier Vol 1 (Paperback)
Great stuff! This really is. Penned by the ever-reliable Robert Kirkman (I'm a great fan of his The Walking Dead and Invincible series), this is the tale of Brit, an indestructible man in his sixties who works for the American government taking on some seriously dangerous bad guys, included telepaths who can control whole towns of people, monsters from other dimensions and alien invaders. He's a gruff character, but has a liberal side to him, a straight talking, no-nonsense attitude and a highly developed sense of moral honesty that makes him a lovable individual and pleasant to spend time with as he takes down the villains whilst juggling home life with his young stripper girlfriend. There's a sharp humour in this book (Brit has no other super powers - such as super strength - so he literally has to do things such as let a far stronger villain beat him up for hour upon hour until said supervillain becomes so tired that Brit can easily deal with him) and it's often a joy to read. The artwork by Tony Moore serves the stories incredibly well. It is not over-coloured, as many comics seem to be these days, and it is crisp and clean and quite easy on the eye. All in all, then, a fun and involving read that will have you chuckling away whilst experiencing the occasional moment of awed wonder.
