Special ops action in imaginary war

Bloody Mary - Garth Ennis, Carlos Ezquerra

 

 

Bloody Mary is a Special Ops operative working for the US/UK alliance in a war against the rest of Europe (this should stoke the Brexit tribe!). In the first story, the enemy get a new super-weapon which can transform soldiers into fighting machines and violent carnage ensures until Bloody Mary resolves the issue. In the second story, she returns to the US to find a religious fanatic who wants to sire an entire generation to save America.

 

Engaging story but pretty bloody at times: a lot of killing. Also it’s as one-off which is great as some series just seem to go on forever.
