Clandestino #1

   I do love a good revenge story - and that's what Clandestino is all about!

   It's set in an alternate reality - one in which a renegade military leader - General Kapala - has managed a military coup against the United States, and has taken control.

   Of course, a rebel group rises up to fight back, and one of the key figures is a man known only as Clandestino.

   In this series, written and drawn by Amancay Nahuelpan, we get a few brutal action sequences, the setup for the series, and the events that motivate the title character to seek revenge on Kapala and his followers.

   It's a brutal, "B-movie" setup (and that's not an insult in any way), guaranteed to bring the reader back for more next issue.

   The art, like the story, is raw and visceral - Nahuelpan has a unique style that's perfectly suited for this story.

   If you're a fan of the dystopian, end-of-the-world (or sure looks like it) action flick, you should check out this series.

Grade: B+
