Checkmate: A King’s Game & Pawn Breaks – Greg Rucka

I was introduced to Checkmate from the pages of Vigilante and this isn’t it, which is a good thing. I wasn’t sure I would like the idea of a human/superhuman UN police agency (SHIELD anyone?) for no other reason than the UN hasn’t been able to so much as tie a shoe in decades, yet this comic is filled with backstabbing, intrigue, and politicking. All of which is great!
