A collection of the three one-shots of Brit from 2003 and 2004. His main characteristic is being indestructible and being old. Brit works for the US government (some spook division) and takes out villains with superpowers. His main tactic is to go in, tire them out and then kill them without hesitation. This works splendidly most of the time, but often his action involve a high amount of collateral damage. Beside the widescreen action the comics also explore Brit’s private life, which leads to some of the more funnier moments.
Brit’s appeal as a character is someone who is simple and direct, whether he has to deal with supervillains or parents-in-law. That doesn’t mean he’s stupid, but he doesn’t do melodrama and deep introspection each moment of his life. That he can show the final pages of the collection, where all the consequences of his violent lifestyle come back to haunt him.
Brit is a comic that is plain fun, one that doesn’t take itself too seriously most of the time, but with enough sophistication to make the characters convincing and real.
