This review is from: The Losers (Vol. 1) : Ante Up (Paperback)
The Losers is a caper movie with a $150 million budget turned into a comic book! The characters are instantly engaging and the situation they find themselves in is interesting and provocative with obvious long term appeal. Continuing the movie-analogy - you can see the sequels coming already!
The story concerns a team of CIA black ops that have been hung out to dry by their handler, the mysterious Max. The CIA, in fact, believes them dead. The Losers are here to show them that not only are they alive and kicking but that they're kicking them in the head!
Whilst the plot initially appears to be a simple "boys own" yarn, it actually nicely twists about and with Diggle's added real-politick undertones this is a cracking read.
Whilst Jock's art is excellent at conveying the action and high-explosive nature of this story it does occasionally come unstuck when required to do subtle facial expressions (not helped by the facial similarities of two of the lead characters). But this is a minor quibble as "subtle" is not a word that needs to be used to often when describing "The Losers".
In summary - if you like high-octane political caper movies then this is for you (especially at this bargain introductory price!)
