Black Ops

 BLAO   (Image, 1996)

ô and ©1996 Aegis Entertainment

(From the Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

A high-tech spy story throwing a team of government agents against a would-be world ruler specializing in the construction of robots and high-power battle suits. Itís all very Cold War, and laughable when authenticity is conveyed by the use of dozens of military acronyms, each of which has to be explained with a footnote. That said, thereís enough action and deception to keep up the interest, and itís encouraging to see spy novels as an influence in the place of old comics. ~FP
