Finally got a chance to read one of Bendis' earliest works. His voice has changed significantly but I see touches of the writer I've enjoyed for years. The story is interesting but it felt forced and needed to be fleshed out more. The art was fine. Overall, a decent 80s spy tale that didn't get enough room to grow.
