An extremely smart graphic novel.

Unknown Soldier is the story of Dr. Lwanga Moses, a Uganda-born raised-in-America physician who returns to his war-torn native land with his doctor wife to work in a refugee camp. He finds himself entangled in the fight between the corrupt government and the child soldiers of the vile Lord's Resistance Army. Moses goes all Jason Bourne, discovering that he has combat skills and no memory of acquiring them.

It's not fun, but it's an excellent book. The politics are convincing, the dialogue rings true, his new-found skills seem genuine. The narrative is disjointed, wandering, which echoes the hero's dissociation and confusion. Some of the scenes are brutal, but not gratuitously so. This first volume ends with some truly tantalizing hints of things to come. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment.
