"The Homeland Directive" ia another great book by Venditti. His story is rock solid and all too possible of happening in the distant future (similarly to his incredible debut, "The Surrogates"). He continues to give us stories that make one contemplate the future and wonder where we will in fact venture as a society.

The best way to describe the story is to refer to it as an unofficial prequel to "V for Vendetta" (although it takes place in the US of A). I couldn't put it down, and I dearly hope he returns to this universe that's filled with politicians who think they are doing the right thing, and those few government employees who will fight them at the risk of their careers and lives.
The art is also magnificent. Huddleston does a beautiful job changing the style and brush work throughout the book, using a limited color palette to give the art dynamism that matches the fast pace of the script.

Another compelling read from Robert Venditti.
Can't wait for the next one from him.

When I heard Rob Venditti was taking over Green Lantern for Geoff Johns, I started to investigate his back catalog. While the Surrogates books were okay, The Homeland Directive made me a fan. Both Surrogates and the Homeland Directive are dystopian political thrillers, making Venditti a good candidate to take over Green Lantern. What makes the Homeland Directive special is how close to home it cuts. I think anyone harboring any suspicion against the powers that be in the US will enjoy this book whether Tea Party, socialist, libertarian, environmentalist, or mild cynic.

The art is very different from the house styles of Marvel or DC. It's a little wild.

No plot spoilers here.
With all the intrigue and government leaks, this book as a movie would be a hit right now.
