"I imagine this miniseries is going to be similar to those 80s action movies where the star is never in any real danger, which is okay, because those movies aren't about suspense...it's about you watching a beefy dude with guns wipe the floor with his enemies Charles Bronson DEATHWISH 3 style." -Ain't It Cool News

CrysisCrysis
Richard K. Morgan (w) Peter Bergting (a & c)

The epic miniseries collected! Earth, 2020. United States Special Forces Major Laurence "Prophet" Barnes and the soldiers of Raptor Team thought their deployment on the Lingshan islands was a basic covert op against North Korean forces. They couldn't have been more wrong. Archaeologists had awoken a nightmare on the island that had lain buried for millions of years-the Ceph, an alien race utterly hostile to human life. In a battle that stretches across the solar system and back, can Prophet and Raptor Team stop the aliens and save mankind?

Bullet points:   
"Capp's characters-like the scrappy and wise Mammy Yokum (a sort of female backwoods Popeye, right down to the corncob pipe)-are largely a hoot, as is the mountain folk's hilarious dialect, and plots often play out in unexpected comical ways. Another classic done justice by IDW's Library of American Comics." -LibraryJournal.com
