A dark and twisted start to one of comics best but underappreciated series. Seventeen years later, the story is marred by poor coloring, but writer Peter Milligan was ahead of the game in realizing that there was a tear in the American fabric, working with it to start a metafictional shell game to see what kind of lessons he could draw from the hole. Too bad DC Comics has apparently locked the file drawer on this one, because it only gets better, particularly once artist Christopher Bachalo starts coming into his own.
