Lots of cool comics came out this week – World War Hulk #2, All Flash #1, Justice League of America #11, Strange Embrace #2 – but one stands out beyond all the rest for me. The Programme #1, written by Peter Milligan with art by C.P. Smith, is a must buy, in my opinion.
It opens during WWII and the fall of Berlin, but leads us to a mirror image of our modern day. The U.S. is at war in the Middle East, in a fictional country called Talibstan, where a group of soldiers gets wiped out by an unknown weapon. This weapon is the center of the book and it just gets crazier as the book goes on. The series is a 12-issue limited series that is is off to a great start. C.P. Smith’s art does a lot for the mood of the book and makes it that much more enjoyable. I can’t wait to read the next issue.
