Recommended for: anyone interested in spies, WWII, comics
Read in May, 2008

I just started this after Free Comics Day, and it's engrossing and disturbing at the same time. It's about spies during World War II and the personal costs of playing the game. The chapters are dossiers, scattered in non-linear order that you can re-assemble in order. There's something about the art and use of color and shadows that draw you in and creep you out at the same time. This isn't James Bond - it's messy, bloody, and wrenching.
