Overview

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!
Named one of the year's best graphic novels by CNN, Complex, IFC, School Library Journal, Library Journal, and USA Today!

"A great, paranoid read for the modern age." -- Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

"Venditti's cat-mouse thriller demands edge-of-your-seat attention while raising serious questions about terrorism, personal privacy, and government responsibility ... excellent writing and plotting, and dead suitable art." -- Library Journal

"In exploring the nature of the relation between the individual, society and the state, one would anticipate The Homeland Directive to elevate both the thriller genre and the comics medium. Venditti delivers admirably on both counts." -- Dr. shathley Q, PopMatters

"An addictive page-turner that feels like an edge-of-your-seat theater experience. Huddleston's art puts the focus where it needs to be to wring every drop of tension from the story, and Venditti's script shows that he doesn't need the sci-fi elements of his earlier work to craft a fascinating, fast-paced thriller." -- Rick Marshall, MTV Splash Page

"The conspiracy at the heart of this superbly paced thriller makes the Illuminati and the New World Order look like rank amateurs." -- Garrett Martin, Paste Magazine

"An exceptionally good graphic novel for the moment... with a sophisticated sense of how government works." -- Alyssa Rosenberg, ThinkProgress

"It's unlikely you'll find a book that looks as good as The Homeland Directive this year." -- Graeme McMillan, Robot 6

"Pulse-pounding... well-characterized, the plotting is tight, and the stakes are high. Mike Huddleston's art flips from pen and ink to painterly, but consistently captures the right mood and inspires the gritting of teeth." -- Jeremy Nisen, Under the Radar

A new thriller from the author of the New York Times bestseller The Surrogates!

As a leading researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Laura Regan is one of the world's foremost authorities on viral and bacteriological study. Having dedicated her career to halting the spread of infectious disease, she has always considered herself one of the good guys. But when her research partner is murdered and Laura is blamed for the crime, she finds herself at the heart of a vast and deadly conspiracy. Aided by three rogue federal agents who believe the government is behind the frame-up, Laura must evade law enforcement, mercenaries, and a team of cyber-detectives who know more about her life than she does-all while trying to expose a sinister plot that will impact the lives of every American.

Set in the Orwellian present, The Homeland Directive confronts one of the vital questions of our time: In an era when technology can either doom or save us, is it possible for personal privacy and national security to coexist?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When the head of the National Center for Infectious Diseases is fingered wrongly for murder, she's gotta go rogue to find the real bad guys-who have a megaplot going that affects the entire country. A political/medical thriller for everybody who made it through the 18 volumes of Monster, rooting for the innocent doctor with the law on his tail. Spare, realistic art with striking color wash linked to plot elements. Venditti is known for the well-regarded sci-fi police procedural, The Surrogates.
