Queen and Country Volume 1: 11/09/17
Queen and Country Volume 1 by Greg Rucka is the start of comic about a British SIS Agent Tara Chase. She returns from the Middle East after pulling off an assassination but she's injured and mentally scared. Meanwhile, the home office is targeted and the SIS want to take revenge in their own hands.
Mostly though it's a story about the trauma that comes with firearms. This is not a guns blazing wet dream. It's a moody, cautionary tale about the real dangers of firearms that are often overlooked by pro-gun folks.
Queen & Country was an intense read for me. On the one hand the emotions are raw. On the other, there's a lot procedural stuff, including the sitting around and waiting parts, that make for long, dull bits. I'm debating whether or not to continue with the series.
There are consequences for every shot fired. Bullets have to go somewhere. Bullets don't discriminate. Guns make people feel like superheroes.
