Unknown Soldier - arrival

Vertigo's new series, Unknown Soldier, by writer Joshua Dysart and artist Alberto Ponticelli, arrived at all finer comic book stores today and although I've already read the first two issues and did a blog entry on September 13th, I wanted to give another shout out for the title, especially as it's such a tough market for new titles.
Here's an endorsement by Preacher writer, Garth Ennis: "A story with teeth, unafraid to confront some horrific truths about the world we live in, Joshua Dysart's Unknown Soldier is a comic that genuinely matters." This incarnation of the Unknown Soldier takes place in present day Africa and if you know anything about the political climate and horrors going on there, well you then have some idea of what this new series is about.
