Editorial Reviews


The dialogue is very naturalistic and the two main characters feel like real people. That's not something you can usually get when reading the larger-than-life characters you usually read about in graphic novels. Don't go into this book expecting something like The Expendables or The A-Team. I'm not saying there aren't some intense scenes, but this almost feels like a documentary graphic novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars BPRE series September 26, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great little graphic novels! A great storyline, smart illustrations, and full of page-flipping suspense! I loved all three installments, cant wait for the fourth! If i absolutely had to find a complaint, it would be the length. I tore through them all over three lunchbreaks this week, about one book per hour. I am by no means a fast reader, and i did linger in the illustrations a good bit, but they just went by awfully fast. Speaks volumes, no pun intended, about just how interesting and well done they are though, i guess! Overall, a great series, and if you are "in the know" about these books, then they probably are for you. Buy 'em, youll enjoy 'em!

5.0 out of 5 stars BPRE V2. Great Book! May 26, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The down side of the BPRE series is you wish the story would last longer. It leaves you wanting more. Deep, powerful images and story line about Independent Contractors working in the middle east.

If you like V1 of Black Powder \\ Red Earth, you're going to love V2.

You will be anxious for V3 after reading this.
