Greg Rucka was born in San Francisco and raised on the Monterey Peninsula of California, in an area known to the locals as "Steinbeck Country". Best Writer (for Queen & Country, Wonder Woman and Wolverine). 2005 Eisner Award for Best Writer (for Queen & Country and Gotham Central).

The volume opens with the three-parter Operation: Blackwall, illustrated by Jason Shawn Alexander, whose art I found interesting and suitable. Finally, Mike Hawthorne draws Operation: Dandelion, a four-parter which signals further important changes in the set-up of the series. Again, Rucka's plotting and writing is top notch, and seems to use the qualities of the artist he is working with eminent.

If you like the old British television series "Sandbaggers," you are going to like "Queen & Country," a 4-volume comic book series that centers around the Special Operation Section of the Secret Intelligence Service (aka Military Intelligence-6 (MI-6)). The stories are written by Greg Rucka, but each story is illustrated by a different artist. This 4th volume is about 282 pages with illustrations in black and white. It includes three stories with each focuing on a central character: Paul Crocker (Minder Number 3) illustrated by Brian Hurtt; Tom Wallace (a former Royal Marines commando, promoted from Minder No. 3 to Minder No. 2) illustrated by Rick Burchett; and Nicholas Poole (22nd Regiment of Special Air Service (SAS) illustrated by Christopher Mitten. The first story is about Paul Crocker being sent to Prague to bring the KGB resident there over to the British, but the operation ended in a disaster. The second story is about Tom Wallace being sent to Hong Kong just before the territory's handover to the Peoples Republic of China to investigate the death of the number 2 of the Hong Kong station. The third story is about Nicholas Poole, a Corporal of the 22nd SAS, participating in counter-terrorism operations against the IRA in Northern Ireland. Unlike other comic books, the main characters here are just like other human beings, they make mistakes, occasionally fail to accomplish their missions, fall into depression, quit their jobs, get shot, and some even get killed. The stories also illustrate office politics, in-fightings, bureaucracy, and relationships. The elements make the stories and the characters more intersting. The artwork is as always nicely done and the stories fansinating. I have bought the entire 4 volumes and am pleased with them. The series won the Eisner Award and I wish there are more of them.

I got into Queen and Country after reading Whiteout, also created by Greg Rucka. The first two editions set the tone for the series and you felt a connection growing with all of the characters, not just Tara Chace. But by the third volume here, you start to feel frustrated at the change in character line-ups. Perhaps this was the intention of Rucka in order to express the reality of Tara's job and how quickly people come and go but it makes it seem pointless to introduce a character and develop their personality and relationships to only have them gone by the next operation. I also found this volume to be darker than ever with little humor, which I appreciated before as small breaks in between missions and tense situations. I'm holding out that Volume 4 will be consistently good but add a little more flair.

Greg Rucka's Queen & Country is the best comic book series of the last decade. Gritty and realistic in tone, this series has never failed to disappoint with its smart politics, on-the-dot characterizations of both life in Government and in the field, and the daily lives of its cast. Rucka is great at crafting dialogue that is explanatory, yet not patronizing when it comes to world affairs and the inter-personal back and forth isn't bad either. This volume of the Definitive Edition represents the rather sad end with which the first series culminated. Tara Chace's career reaches several turning points as she grapples, at varying times, with the deaths of three of her fellow minders, the callousness international politics, and her own limits as an operative. Given that this volume ties directly in to the events within the first Queen & Country novel (A Gentleman's Game) some key points could be missed by some readers, particularly those who have not comprehensively followed the series. Mr. Rucka's many other projects obviously did not allow him to bring this series to a smooth conclusion and the last few issues are of emblematic of that fact. Regardless, the stories on their own merits hold up to scrutiny and leave the reader wanting for more. I simply cannot wait for another Queen & Country novel or graphic series to begin anew. These characters remain real, engaging and surprisingly endearing. In terms of comics that seek to engage the reader in an adventurous plotline, within a real world setting devoid of men in tights, this tome and the series it chronicles is peerless.

I absolutely love this format. It's portable, and it's packed with stories. For a "Definitive" edition I would have liked some more behind the scenes work, concept art and the like, but it's good enough. The story is gripping as always. My only complaint is the art. While I like seeing the different artistic representations, and the art does always click, it's sometimes jarring to try to re acclimate yourself to the characters at the beginning of each arc. I finally do, and it only takes the end of the first issue now since I know the voices of the characters, but it can be annoying for new readers.

Rucka continues to produce great comic work. If you are a fan of any of the different comics he has written then you should pick this as well as the first three volumes of Queen and Country up.
Berkohi
Thanks, Greg. This is how comics are supposed to be.
Rleillin
Rucka is at his best. A very good comic book series. I wish they had more than four volumes. I am not sure but it might the be inspiration for Sky1/Cinemax' critically acclaimed "Strike Back" series.
Every part of this collection is excellent. Jason Alexander's part (Operation Blackwall) is particularly amazing.
