SITREP: Kotaku reviews SHOOTERS

Powerhouse gaming/culture site Kotaku offers a review of Shooters, drawing some unique parallels and contrasts between the graphic novel and contemporary military first-person shooter videogames. An interesting read. 

 

"Shooters protagonist Terry Glass isn't that different from the kind of character you'd play in a Medal of HonorBattlefield or Call of Duty game. He's a fictional American soldier fighting in the geopolitical hotspots where America's armed forces face off against disparate, tough-to-pin-down threats. Young, handsome and affable, Glass fights for all the right reasons: to uphold a family tradition of serving his nation. But this graphic novel diverges greatly from the video games it slightly resembles by showing just how brutal life back gets once a soldier has answered the call of duty."
