I don't usually go for spy/espionage stories in any format, but I surprised myself by how much I liked this one. The story is detailed but well thought out and the pacing is great. And it is more then just a story about sexy spies and big guns -- the characters are grounded in realism and being a spy is more like difficult lonely bureaucratic work then an action packed thrill ride. I wasn't pleased with how the art changed over the course of this volume. I thought that Tara was much more realistic in the eyes of the original artist and by the end she was just another babe with gravity defying tits. I'll stick with the series but I hope that it continues to show Tara as a person and not a sex object.
