Sterling Gates has done a great job. The rage of Hawk is well done. He is still a jerk, but we can see it comes from the pain of missing his brother. Dawn rocks as a Dove with an attitude. There is a great zombie horde and an unique terrorist threatening Washington D.C. The action in the opening is funny and tense. I like the way Hawk and Dove do not work together.
A hint as to why these two are paired up now is given. Dawn is still dating Boston Brand. That is either the creepiest thing imagined or oddly romantic. I am sure the Internet fanfiction groups are having a good time with this idea. I think Hawk could be a little jealous of this relationship.
There is a great deal going on in these 22 pages. It is a great start with interpersonal relationships between all the characters. Introduction of supporting cast was smoothly done and this is just a wonderful story. What amazed me is that the art didn't bother me. I am not a Liefeld fan. It is not that I dislike his art as much as it just doesn't inspire me like others in the profession. The success here is that the art didn't detract from the story.
This is a maybe for my pull list.
