Issue(s): Nomad #10
All you need to know about this issue is the cover.
The interior has another Nomad vs. Headlines story, with Nomad getting involved in a Native American protest. Nomad has been hired by a Native American friend as protection for his group, who have taken over a building. The protest is about whether or not gambling will be legal on the reservation. Red Wolf has been called in by FBI agent Vernon Hatchway, who Nomad also knows, to settle the protest down. So Nomad and Red Wolf come into conflict in a way that flips expectations a bit.
In the end it turns out that getting the FBI to storm their protest was exactly what the protestors wanted, since it makes for good press. Nomad is arrested, but Hatchway lets him go at the end.
But who cares? Puppy vs. baby!
Like i said, it's better on the cover. And why is Bucky's costume's color constantly switching between blue and green? Which is it really?

Hee. It's kinda funny how "timely" these reviews end up being, huh?

Pat Olliffe makes me think of Ditko and Colan mixed together in a modern milieu. His art is best when it's either very sharply inked (like on Untold Tales of Spider-Man) or more loosely inked, but it can't be glossily inked like would often happen over at DC. For a book that wants to be edgy, Olliffe is an odd choice since his art isn't all mangled. You'd think they'd make Nomad be all Liefeldian.
