I wanted to let you know about the release of “Matamoros,” a comic book which was illustrated by John Cox of Cox & Forkum. I’m one of the co-writers of the book.
Its plot follows an American NCO who is wounded in the war, returns home to recuperate and then discovers a jihadist cell in NYC. You can read about the book and view a few sample pages at http://www.MatamorosComic.com…
…We’ve taken a serious and realistic approach to the book’s plot (e.g., we patterned the jihadist cell after a group called the “Islamic Thinkers Society” which is located in NYC and is an offshoot of the UK’s al-Muhajiroun).
Pop culture has essentially ignored the troops fighting the War on You-Know-Who and we’re trying to change that with our book.
