ARMY@LOVE #1
Written by Rick Veitch


Art and cover by Veitch & Gary Erskine


Comics iconoclast Rick Veitch (SWAMP THING, CAN'T GET NO) writes and pencils a subversive new ongoing series, joined by inker Gary Erskine (THE FILTH).


Comedy collides head on with tragedy when a New Jersey National Guard unit is deployed indefinitely to a never-ending series of wars in the Middle East. These are citizen soldiers - kids fresh out of high school shoulder-to-shoulder with middle-aged corporate manager. To motivate them, a modernized military has gone into full, take-no-prisoners marketing mode.


Equal parts blistering battle action, sensuous soap opera and pitch-black satire in the vein of PREACHER and TRANSMETROPOLITAN, Army@Love is unlike anything Veitch - or any other comics creator - has ever attempted. And you won't believe your eyes when you see what it takes to become a member of The Hot Zone Club! Don't miss a Sneak Peek at this issue in Y: THE LAST MAN #55.
