DC's Best Comic Right Now Is Not So Quietly About the Horror of the Iraq War

In Strange Adventures, Adam Strange is a desperate man. In issue after issue, he pleads with the heroes of Earth to join him in war in a far off land. One after another, they decline, and as they decline, he gets angrier and angrier, until he's rendered as a madman with spittle flying from his mouth. We, the readers, know his testimony is based on lies. But Strange sees his cause as so just that he has deluded even himself into believing it is the truth.
