    • If you are a person who can quickly understand the military jargon/tactical planning aspects of the story, I would highly recommend this graphic novel. Adaptations of all kinds should be encouraged, and this is one of the more innovative ideas I have seen in a while.That being said, the execution failed for me. Seven Samurai is one of my favorite movies ever, and I also love adaptations of all kinds. Unfortunately the tactics discussed for the defense of the town was largely lost on me so I beca [...]


    • Graphic novels seem to be the fallback strategies for failed movie pitches or movies with scripts drastically pruned due to time constraints. Rubicon has a couple of Hollywood big shots involved with its production on the graphic novel medium, but this still fails to really vitalize the book for me. The idea is based on Kurosawa's Seven Samurais, a movie which I have been unable to complete, despite its influential nature and many acclamations; it was just so damn boring for me so I can't really [...]


    • An original and topical spin on Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, Rubicon sets the story in counterinsurgent operations in Afghanistan in the present day. The story scales perfectly, and the author has a good ability to keep the tension strong throughout. It's lighter on character than I'd like, and I keep feeling it would be better served by being much longer, to give more screen time to the relationships between the Americans and their Afghan allies, which is the most interesting part of the story, an [...]


    • What a brilliant idea. Take the plot of the movie The Seven Samurai, and relocate it from medieval Japan to modern day Afghanistan. Instead of samurai, use Seal Team members.When a Seal Team member is killed in Afghanistan, his fellow team members travel to the base to find out what happened and possibly get revenge. When a local village asks for help defending against the Taliban, they round up a couple other soldiers from the base to help defend the village.The original story idea came from Ho [...]


    • I haven't read very many graphic novels.With that said I found Rubicon to be action packed, exhilarating, and true to life. I suspect that this story has a basis on actual events, I did not read that anywhere but it has the feel of reality or in the very least this exact scenario could have played out over in the Middle East and the majority of us would never know.Exceptional art work and great pen work. The storyline is fantastic. The only thing that I think I would have like to of seen more of [...]


    • There's not much to love about this book. The art can sometimes be great, but more often than not it's muddy. My best guess is this is done intentionally to simulate the confusion of war, but I was frequently confused as to who was on which side. I knew whose side the Americans were on, but it was necessary for them to tell you who was killed because you had no attachment, didn't know the names, and had a hard time realizing who was killed from panel to panel.I think the biggest crime of this wh [...]


    • Great read. Like the Seven Samurai , the SEALS did their selfless thing protecting the Afghan villagers against the Taliban.There's no honour in war , only friendship deeper than blood and the destiny of the true warrior.




    • Well this was actually a very nice piece of reading. Comics are not my main source of fiction intake, as I read mostly fantasy novels, but I thought I should give this a try. I was pleasently surprised at the quality of the drawing and the ability to convey the fast paced action that was going on. The story is nothing too elaborate or far-fetched. It really is just an "average" day in "taliban country" for the US navy Seals. So there is no big intrigue, or psychological games or mystery to solve [...]


    • Graphic novels are wonderful constructs. They allow us to tell stories unlike any other and impart an understanding to readers that simple text on the page is in capable of. That’s not to knock the beauty of text, but the Seven Samurai retold as Navy SEALS, as awesome as it sounds, just wouldn’t work in text alone. That’s why it’s great that there is a graphic novel of exactly that – Rubicon by Mark Long, Dan Capel, Mario Stilla and Christopher McQuarrie.Greg's full review at: adventur [...]


    • Fairly satisfying modern tale of Navy SEAL operators in Afghanistan defending a village from the Taliban. I appreciated the complex setup of tension that likely occurs to soldiers where encounters have great consequences. If say or do the 'wrong' thing then you lose trust, respect and aid. Since one of the authors Dan Capel is a founding member of SEAL team six then you have authenticity in tale. Brief interview after text ddescribes wanting to emulate 'Seven Samurai.' If into current military v [...]


    • An awesome idea, which, seeing as it's inspired by Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai, makes sense. The artwork, while a bit muddy for my taste, fits the theme and the setting of the story. The story is a bit lacking for me, but that is what you get sometimes with some graphic novels it seems. All in all, I'd recommend this one to people who like graphic novels where the super heroes don't wear capes, or people who like military realistic storytelling.


    • The art was choppy and not always consistent, the military lingo was only rarely explained so half the time I didn't know what was going on (especially during the battle scenes), and the characters were not well developed. We only got background info on the red-haired guy, so I didn't really feel any sense of loss when one of the other characters died. I really liked the concept (Seven Samurai in Afghanistan) but was disappointed in its execution.


    • What a rush of adventure this was, I enjoyed it thoroughly. I saw this in an email from NetGalley and I'm quite glad I chose to download it. Having grown up in a military family I've always been interested in military stories and history so knowing this graphic novel was written by men who served in the sandbox it made it feel more "authentic." Thank you to all of those who have served our country.


    • Conceptually, this was a very different comic than your standard Spider-Man, X-Men, etc. sort of fare. I enjoyed it. It was interesting to take a very classic story and retranslate it not only to the comic book medium, but to update its time and place to SF and SEALS in Afghanistan was pretty cool.
