Of these was a novel but in both cases I have only seen their cinematic expression The good guys find themselves somehow at odds with special I have only seen their cinematic expression The good guys find themselves somehow at odds with special and murderous services without the US bureaucratic behemoth and spend the story s bulk speeding toward two goals 1 exposing whatever fraud or injustice they ve run across and 2 surviving long enough to expose whatever fraud or injustice they ve run across Just because it s predictible doesn t mean it isn t funVenditti s script is smart in that way that television sitcoms may be smart Its observations are never particularly astute and its dialogue is all a touch wooden but it prides itself on its snappy banter It s kind of like Brian Azarello s scripting in 100 Bullets only so deeply toned down that ou no longer want to kick its teeth in with a boot made of schoolbuses Venditti moves the plot along at a good clip and the reader will never feel as if he s simply treading water and padding his page count For what it is it s hard to find any fault save for maybe that one might wish it were slightly less thriller The Homeland Directive s most evident strength sits in Huddleston s interesting art choices It s all very explosive and fits well the bombastic tale of a government gone rogue Huddleston s drawing and figurework would probably only be considered adeuate if it weren t for the tremendous dynamism he infuses into the work through his palette I couldn t always be certain why he chose one set of colours for one page and another set for another but the colours he employs almost always excite and contribute nicely to the thrill of reading It s really not Stop itAt the end of the day The Homeland Directive probably wouldn t be considered anything particularly spectacular outside of the genre niche into which it carves a home but taken on its home turf the book is uite good and accomplishes its purpose wellReview courtesy of Good Ok Bad Didn t really care for this Conspiracy theory type story where the government is out to kill some peopleyawn A compelling plot and creative art Wow what could I ask forThis book starts us out slow and builds fast It tells a story from on the ground not as if there s a narrator or any inkling that outsiders are peering in and wondering what s going onThis was a lot fun to read than I usually give credit to non capes graphic what s going onThis was a lot fun to read than I usually give credit to non capes graphic So many lack a really tightly plotted story and imaginative backstory this must ve taken Venditti uite a while to put togetherThe art is uite a mix of styles and palettes all evoking different moods and focus of the reader Obviously some strong talent here that doesn t suit the usual comics style but that we should start demanding from our big publishers I think the medium would be much better for it A fast paced paranoia fueled thriller I wouldn t look for much in the way of depth or character motivation here But it is enormously fun to read There are some really interesting choices in the art as well I especially liked the panels that had anatomy text like illustrations overlaying the simpler line art that carried the action I think this would make a really fun movie and it makes for a very entertaining rea.

Reunited with His Long-Lost Cinderella
S on our 20 That s this pile of garbage characters running about hauling some unsuspecting civilian who s being targeted by the US government for reasons and everyone s gonna die and the President is somehow involved or something At some point towards the end a couple of dialogue stuffed pages breathlessly recounts the reasons behind all the running and shooting and paranoid nonsense something to do With Scaring The Public Into Giving The Government Powers Artlessly scaring the public into giving the government powers artlessly heavily condemning the evil Bush administration with their PATRIOT Act etc but I was so beaten with tedium by that point I didn t care Mike Huddleston s art reflects Robert Venditti s ultra crappy and confused script by changing from page to page He s drawing on graph paper using inks now he s on blank paper and using pencils now he s using only red and green colours now he s adopting a photo realistic style now he s using a scratchy style now it s full colour now it s black and white mental Settle down Mike our ADHD artistic approach is giving me an eye ache Don t read this nonsense It makes Shia LaBeef s Eagle Eye artistic approach is giving me an eye ache Don t read this nonsense It makes Shia LaBeef s Eagle Eye if ou had the misfortune to sit through that look like a masterpiece in comparison If The Looks of Love you do pick it up expect a thriller for the sake of a thriller rather than anything substantial well thought out ores thrilling Disappointing I was hoping for a take on the Deep State the military industrial complex that dominates Washington Drones assassinations torture widespread surveillance data mining there s so much to work with But instead it was just a cookie cutter political thriller In Talking Head s song Don t Worry About The Government David Byrne paints a portrait of typical American naive complacency This book does an excellent job at shaking one s complacency and assumptions upWell not me so much as I already mistrust the governmentI do not think it is outlandish to imagine forces in our government fabricating a terrorist attack if it gave them control and power over it s citizens as a result See Operation NorthwoodshttpenwikipediaorgwikiOperatioWithout the words the art looks sterile and strange but once I started reading I grew to appreciate the art and indeed applaud it s innovative approach Thrillers are fluff There s really no way around it Even the best are designed not to engage the philosophical beast but to entice the reptile man Thrillers appeal to our base instincts our demand for survival They stoke the fires or our adrenaline and even the smartest of them fail to thrill if they get too smart At that point they cease to be thrillers and become some kind of careful literature that makes knowing use of the thriller s mode Either that or they become bad thrillersFortunately The Homeland Directive is neither of these neither the inept thriller nor literary fiction capitalizing on the forms and tropes of the thriller Instead Venditti s and Huddleston s brisk work is pure thriller and succeeds in purpose mostly admirably The Homeland Directive is one of those mid level or higher government conspiracy arns cut from the cloth of Harrison Ford s Clear and Present Danger and Will Smith s Enemy of the State at least one. Artner 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 about her For his first creator owned work since the groundbreaking Surrogates Venditti delivers a taut thriller that elevates the genre within the comics medium After Dr Laura Regan s research partner is murdered and she is blamed for the crime police the FBI cyber detectives and mercenaries hunt for the CDC researcher Why does everyone want Regan for the crime police the FBI cyber detectives and mercenaries hunt for the CDC researcher Why does everyone want Regan What are the upper echelons of the federal government trying to hide Who are the mismatched uartet of inter agency spooks trying to protect Regan The nuanced and extraordinary art of Huddleston enhances Venditti s intelligent tension filled script Paranoid and addictive The Homeland Directive provides a level of suspenseful excitement rarely
