AMERICAN FLAGG! TRADE PAPERBACK COLLECTION VOLUME 1
For years fans have been clamoring for new editions of Howard Chaykin'S legendary AMERICAN FLAGG! series. In response to this demand DYNAMIC FORCES and Image Comics have teamed up to present one of the most anticipated collections in recent years. Originally published in the early eighties AMERICAN FLAGG! tells the story of Ranger Rueben Flagg as he navigates an American landscape that in retrospect feels more prophetic with each passing year. The winner of numerous industry awards including nine Eagle Awards AMERICAN FLAGG! is set in 2031 in a world ravaged by nuclear conflict environmental disasters and nationalism that had driven the United States government - and the corporations that owned it - to the relative safety of the planet Mars. The government and the corporations now renamed the Plex govern from a distance relying on the Plexus Rangers to maintain any semblance of law and order. Once the star of a television series dramatizing the fictional adventures of one such Ranger Flagg was replaced by a hologram and then drafted into the real Rangers where he was assigned to protect the city of Chicago. Along with Raul the smartest talking cat alive and Luther Ironheart the stupidest robot ever and surrounded by a bevy of the most beautiful women of the 21st century Flagg faces an uphill battle protecting and defending the American way of life - or rather what's left of it. The first DF/Image trade paperback collects issues 1 through 6 of the original series (including the complete stories Hard Times and Southern Comfort). The first volume also includes a nine-page prelude written and illustrated by CHAYKIN that was never printed in the original comic.
