"The most eloquent use of a super-human archetype for a great many years,Darnall and Ross have with UNCLE SAM produced a luminous and moving study of America's iconographic landscape."
Alex Ross illustrates a vibrant, hallucinatory tour of modern America as seen through the eyes of a homeless man who may be the living spirit of America in this new hardcover edition of a Vertigo classic. With dynamic painted art by Alex Ross, UNCLE SAM is the story of a star-spangled vagrant clad in red, white and blue, guided by the voices in his head and his own fractured memories. Absorbed by history-traveling visions of America's dark past, Uncle Sam struggles to piece together the scattered clues of his own experiences in this deep and thoughtful look at America's checkered past.
