I was trying to place what this book reminded me of, and it took some time, but it finally struck me that this book had a Preacher vibe to it. Mainly thanks to the healthy helping of Vietnam as a story impetus, but also how God was used. So that was interesting.

I don't like Ultimate Cap. He's a dick. He's like the Punisher, only he talks a lot more, and I like to like Cap. He's like the cooler version of Superman, so reading a take on the character that's abrasive is a little rough. Couple that with the antagonist in this story being an ever WORSE version than Ult Cap, and you have a story where there is no clear cut person to pull for. This book was all grey. But that cools because Aaron is the real deal. Garney is also perfect on art.
