Newsarama's Best Shots Advance Review: Pilot Season: 39 Minutes #1
With movies such as Takers, The Town, and The Hurt Locker gaining praise and big box office numbers (the latter took home a Best Picture Oscar), it's no surprise that crime/military dramas would start making a comeback of sorts in comics. In this year's Pilot Season, there is such a book that incorporates that type of story, and it's not too shabby. 39 Minutes tells the story of former military commander John Clayton, who is incarcerated for bogus charges, and his former team that has currently gone rogue and in the middle of a crime spree.
For those of you looking for something without capes, I'd recommend 39 Minutes. While it's not perfect, it's still a hearty read.
