Ye Gods, lets hope this doesn't get a movie treatment

...So who is this made for, exactly?

Oooh, I know! is it: "The 4% of Americans still wearing red baseball caps"?

No, they're the ones that hate the idea of the government constantly monitoring them. They just want them to constantly monitor brown people.

I doubt we're meant to take the soldier-boy worship at face value, for what it's worth.

Good to see Millar once again demonstrating his nuanced understanding of American politics.

By the way, Mark, antisocial behavior unit? Anti-Social Behaviour is only a legal term in the UK, not in the US. This is a bit like showing the US Supreme Court all wearing white wigs.

This seems like the backstory to Marshall Law.

Was this ever finished? I think this series never made it past the halfway point.

I see no conceivable way this could possibly backfire!

Did this end up with the government being behind the terror attacks in the first place? Just the first thought I had after reading the first few pages.

I haven't even read it, but is there any doubt?

Yeah, smacked of Operation Northwoods, the U.S. generals' plan in the early '60s to kill Americans and blame it on pro-Castro Cubans so that JFK would have to invade Cuba. He walked out of the meeting in which the plan was explained to him.

We get it, Mark; you don't have a very high opinion of Americans. Now write about something else.

Seriously, aside from some of the civilians in Huck (which was a better story when Astro City did it the first time), I have a hard time thinking of a post-9/11 American that he hasn't written as a ridiculous caricature.
