Traitor, Jeffrey Nachmanoff (2008)

Tricky one, both on its own bizarre terms and in terms of evaluation. This ain’t no Bruckheimer job; it’s got ambitions to be important. Pretty much anything I say will be a spoiler, so I won’t say more than this: The intent here is to use the trope of the double-agent to demonstrate that pretty much any situation in which such shenanigans are possible is also one in which finally both sides are culpable. A very good example of how to coat a straight-up good-for-you seitan polemic with action movie frosting and sell it as a cupcake. Reminds me of the Spire Christian Comics I used to read as a kid.
