How far should protesters go to make their case? Is the news media biased because of corporate ownership? What is the dividing line between civil liberties and keeping the country safe? There are no easy answers in AMERICAN TERRORIST, nor should there be. The story, by Tyler and Wendy Chin-Tanner, illustrated by Andy MacDonald, has an unexpected ending that I hope the creative team leaves as is, rather than revisiting in a sequel. --The New York Times
9 1/2 Stars (out of 10)!
The mastery of this tale is how is amazingly entertainingly it interweaves fiction with current events, with political ideology, with a call to action that is absent in many mainstream political movements nowadays.
Wisely avoiding the trappings of just writing a political pamphlet, giving us an insider's point of view into a complex issue, an avoiding easy and feelgood resolutions at the end, I wish the comic book publishing landscape offered us more books like this. --ComicWatcher.com
