The Homeland Directive; Venditti & Huddleston

Last week, Top Shelf released another fine graphic novel, The Homeland Directive, written by Robert Venditti (Surrogates) and drawn by Mike Huddleston (The Coffin and Deep Sleeper). What is The Homeland Directive about?: The central character is Dr. Laura Regan, who works as a researcher / authority on viral and bacteriological study at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Her research partner is murdered and she gets involved in a governmental conspiracy frame-up. Here's another sound-bite summation of what The Homeland Directive is about (from the inside flap of this graphic novel): "Set in the Orwellian present, The Homeland Directive confronts one of the vital questions of our time: In an era when technology can either doom or save us, is it possible for personal privacy and national security to coexist?" This graphic novel couldn't be more timely and Venditti and Huddleston tell this story with great characters and an intensity that makes The Homeland Directive a great thriller.
