Overview

Just in time for the fall election, this race-against-time political thriller follows an ex Special Forces commando who goes undercover with a militia group that's plotting to assassinate the second African-American President of the U.S.
In the week leading up to a major campaign speech, the Secret Service discovers that an extremist militia group is plotting to assassinate America's second African American President. The best chance to advert this crisis is to infiltrate the group using an ex-Special Forces war hero turned conservative media pundit named Ted Akers. While Aker's politics make him a hero to the right-wing fringe and no friend to the current Administration, he takes the assignment and what follows is an adrenaline fueled race against time to stop a President from dying and a country from being ripped apart.
An original graphic novel by Mat Johnson (INCOGNEGRO, DARK RAIN) and Andrea Mutti.

    Despicably bad!

    If you ever wanted to see an extreme exaggeration of left and right wing politics in graphic novel form, this is for you. If you like good writing this is not for you. Sadly, that harsh statement is true. Author Mat Johnson shows just how ugly politics to the extreme could be but in such a comically ridiculous way that its impossible to take the story serious. Every character was a stereotype and it was appallingly bad. The art by Andrea Mutti was good but there was nothing that could save the dreadful story. Skip it.
