DC Comics
$4/$2.99 US
** 1/2 (out of five)

The catchphrase for Uncle Sam And The Freedom Fighters is “They fight for you!”
Now as a Canadian, I’m not sure they actually are fighting for me, but either way I’m not sure that’s such a great thing.
In another attempt to spin interest out of the fallout from Infinite Crisis, which saw the original Freedom Fighters massacred by the Society of Super-Villains, DC brings us the adventures of the embodiment of the American ideal.
Oh there’s mystery, intrigue, action and all that good stuff, but there’s also devolution into civil rights, patriotism and the ethics of war — all the things that are, no doubt, on American’s minds right now, but don’t necessarily make for fun comic books.
This one might just be a little to over the top for the common comic fan.
