A supernatural take on World War II espionage featuring a girl with the ability to possess other bodies. Outstanding art by the talented John Cassaday. Europe, December 1942. The global conflict has reached a fever pitch. The Nazis are at the height of their power. Now the destinies of several men will cross through a project code named "Legion," a series of horrific tests that a young Romanian girl with apparent supernatural abilities must undergo. Her "skills," if fully exploited by the Nazis, would give them unimaginable power…
I haven't had a chance to read this yet, but it looks very good. It's a violent story, of Nazi lust for power and their careless regard for any human life. The artwork is excellent, not flamboyant in the least but dramatic and well-told, like a very polished Corben. Cassaday is in the school of Russ Heath, he can draw anything with a realism that is sometimes scary. Characterization here looks excellent, both in the art and in the storytelling.
"Veteran artist John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men) brings his ‘A’ game in this series for sure. The creepy little girl and her cat, the action scenes with the Nazis and the strike force, even simply the scenes of dialog grab you and pop right off of the pages. The colorist [Laura Martin] definitely deserves to be mentioned as well, as she does a fine job with the tones of the book." - ComicAttack.net.
"The Nazis can be a go-to target for villains and they've definitely been lampooned over the years. That's not the case here. They're a real threat and what they've tapped into is a serious danger to themselves and the world." - HorrorTalk.com.
