Pigs starts with a simple premise, In 1962 a KGB sleeper cell is placed in Cuba. Years later the children of these agents are activated with orders to bring down the US government. From here a complex and deeply layered story begins. The story is told in a non-linear fashion, jumping between three time periods - Now, Soon and Earlier. This is a very effective way to structure the plot, as more details are revealed in each time period our view of these characters and their motivations is constant...more

Image Comics has evolved into the Goliath of the creator-owned industry. With Dark Horse floundering and publishing nothing more than Conan and Star Wars comics, Image has been snatching up all of the innovative writers they can find. For the most part, they're doing a hell of a job.

A few sloppily handled representations of women chilling in underpants with guns, but other than that I'm not mad at the Cosby/McCool led team.
If the final page of the first issue doesn't grab you, just put the book down.

This reminds me a lot of The Losers and I think the creators see that too as Andy Diggle provides te introduction and Jock drew the covers.

if you like the use of swearing to make your characters seem real hardass, then this book is for you!

but seriously, I wouldn't doubt it if there were a cell of KGB child-operatives still active.
Interesting so far. But really just too short for me to form a proper opinion. I'll continue reading it if I remember to buy the next volume when it comes out.

Once again, this is good, but not great. I really think the premise is interesting, but the writing leaves a lot to be desired.
