Notes:

Brit starred in three one-shots: Brit (July 2003), Brit: Cold Death (December 2003), Brit: Red, White, Black and Blue (August 2004). Robert Kirkman wrote the three one-shots with Tony Moore illustrating the first and second issue and with Cliff Rathburn on the third. The one-shots have been collected in a trade paperback Brit: Old Soldier and was released in March 2007.

The one-shots were black & white/graytones. This TPB has been colorized. Foreword by Rob Liefeld.

Synopsis:

SEX AND VIOLENCE NEVER LOOKED SO... OLD.

Meet the government's last line of defense when it comes to the really messy parts of keeping the world safe, Brit. He spends his time passing down the wisdom of the ages and giving beatings from the day. When super-powered menaces threaten our home soil, send in Brit. When mad dictators take over neighboring countries in order to control their resources, send in Brit. When aliens take over the moon, planning to use it as a staging ground for an all out invasion... bomb it to hell with nuclear missiles... then send in Brit to clean up the leftovers. Brit is a one man killing machine, indestructible, unstoppable... and eligible for a senior citizen's discount.

If you've liked Brit, check out Kirkman's Marvel MAX - Destroyer which is similarly themed.

 

Enjoy!

 

 

p.s. If you want to see the original issues in black & white/graytones instead of this colorized TPB, please let me know.

Last Don - Finally got around to reading it.

There was a series that lasted 12 issues which I have. Will post after i get a chance to UL them

I didn't read this new book yet, but Brit is part of some team with a name along the lines of Guardians of the Globe which I don't have.
