The Losers: Ante Up

Andy Diggle's The Losers was a pleasant surprise after his abysmal run on Swamp Thing. A team of disavowed CIA agents must use everything they learned in order to take down their former agency before the agency takes them out. This rock-em sock-em adventure moves fast, incorporating all the seedy manuevers you've come to expect from a group of spook outsiders. It's one of the few comic books that might actually work as a movie, as it incorporates all the genre cliches while still remaining interesting. Jock's noirish art is just about right for the gritty mood (and enough like Sean Philips' art that I have a hard time telling them apart). An overall GOOD.
