Not the typical graphic novel as it's more intrigue than super powers.
This volume combines two short stories about Checkmate, a shadowy U.N.-backed hero and spy team that arranges its bureaucracy like a game of chess. (I wish more companies took their cue from board games.)

A forced crossover with Shadowpact ensues. Detective Chimp gets a few good lines of dialogue. It's a bit hard to follow in...more
This has been an enjoyable series and something different. Not epic but enjoyable
