Thumbs up for Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. Ultimate Collection (consisting of Volume I: This Is What They Want, and Volume II: I Kick Your Face) by Warren Ellis, illustrated by Stewart Immonen et al. Graphic novel.
A gang of superheroes has discovered that the organization they worked for, H.A.T.E. (Highest Anti-Terrorism Effort) are Not Good Guys After All, so they undertake to stop the destruction of the United States. Thanks, guys. Freaking hilarious, these are. My fella tells me Nextwave is full of references to other comics, but even with absolutely no frame of reference, these made me laugh my ass off. (Hey, at least I got Dirk Anger = Nick Fury!) Ever read a comic? Ever liked a laugh? Do not delay – read Nextwave today.
And, as the sun finally crested the horizon and the hideous squealing noises faded away, a new day began to dawn over this little town I can’t remember the name of. It had been a long, strange night for the Nextwave Squad. One of them finally had his turn at winning. One of them even had something approaching a Character Moment. You can be damn sure we won’t let **** like that happen again.
