Superheros as truly secret agents. Life and death consequences where bystanders get terminally hurt. Wheels within wheels plots. Wow wow wow.

The Casablanca, Third Man nods. The design from backgrounds, to costumes, the patter, the brilliant redesign of Scarecrow - that book is just fantastic. I don't think I have ever enjoyed revamps of characters more.

I know this was an Elseworlds title - but I could go for years with this take on these characters - starting with Ted (still alive) and Hourman working against Mussolini and Franco in the thirties right through the cold war and beginning of the Vietnam era.
The whole team of operatives working out of the limelight - just terrific.
This really would be a great ongoing series.

I was even taken with the reference to the Red Skull by naming the Nazi martian manhunter Johan.
