Unknown Soldier #3

Written by Joshua Dysart
Art by Alberto Ponticelli

This book just keeps getting better. Now that all the exposition is out of the way, we have a lot of action. Moses is taken prisoner by a group of underage rebels, and begins to feel some sympathy for them, until the decisions of their leader make it easy for him to reconcile himself to his hate.

In the background, we also see a little of how conflicts such as the one that tore apart Uganda only get news coverage in the Western world when an American celebrity is involved. As well, the CIA plot is advanced a fraction, setting the book up for what will happen after the first arc is over.

If this book continues like this, I can see it being one of my favorites in 2009.
