Vic Sage is a TV journalist with an uncanny ability to break difficult stories, thanks in large part to his relentless crime-fighting campaign as the Question! But has the faceless vigilante's particular brand of harsh justice finally sent him off the deep end? Prowling the meanest streets of his native Chicago, the trench-coated Question thinks he also walks in another world, a strange shamanic space full of shadowy dangers. When Sage hears the voice of Superman's home city of Metropolis, he answers the call. Is he crazy? That's the question.
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!
Battered and left to perish on an exposed reef, Aquaman discovers, to his horror, that all the denizens of the deep are instructed to attack him without mercy. But though his beloved ocean is off-limits, a mysterious freshwater lake may give him more than just sanctuary.
