Hunter-Killer is an action-adventure book at its heart, but it does have a brain in there as well. One very clear theme of Hunter-Killer is the government's tendency to lie to its people, a timely theme to be sure, although it's depoliticized to a great degree because Waid is using generalities rather than specific lies from today. Hell, the fictional lie that is the big lie in this one comes from one of the most popular Democratic Presidents of all time, even if the way the Hunter-Killer squad now operates seems far more in line with our current administration.

That, in a way, is also a key to what makes Hunter-Killer work. It's something that Waid points up early on in the development process: The Black Ops who operate in secret is a cliché now. Hunter-Killer is not about a black ops unit with a secret agenda. It's about at least three separate and distinct groups or individuals with their own agendas. No one is clearly the bad guys, no one is clearly the good guys, and our point of view character, a young man named Ellis, isn't sure to trust any more than the reader is. There's a lot of material left below the surface, as the readers are left to wonder about the true motivations of the Wolf, the Hunter-Killer squad and, at one point, a rogue teleporter named Transporter, not to mention Ellis himself. However, for all that there's plenty of potential for future stories, Waid and Silvestri make sure to deliver some solid action and forward plot movement in each issue.

Written by Mark Waid, penciled by Eric Basaldua.
