Created by Timothy Lin, Black Hops U.S.A G.I: Volume 1 Buns of the Patriots tells a humorous, but a very action-packed story about a rabbit who is super-intelligent, super strong, and is a super patriot. It is written by Mark Pellegrini and drawn by Lin with epic covers by Dave Dorman.
USA GI is a rabbit who caught in an atomic explosion, but instead of dying, he mutates into an animal with superior strength, speed, intelligence, and the ability to communicate telepathically with his fellow animals. He works for the US government doing secret operations for Cold War, but “retires” after his handler passes away and goes to live with his daughter Penelope on a farm. However, he is called back to action when US intelligence warns that North Korea is planning on launching a ballistic missile at Hawaii.
Originally released in 2018 and later by Antarctic Press, Timothy Lin and Mark Pellegrini have taken the story of a super-powered rabbit and have made something superior to anything coming out of the mainstream comic book industry. That is no small feat and they should be applauded. The premise is funny, but they nab your attention with all of the espionage going on in the story. You get pulled into it and find yourself rooting for this small patriotic rabbit.
I also think the artwork is impressive. Lin is impressive and he does a good job of bringing the characters to life from off the page. I look forward to seeing what comes next for Black Hops and its potential crossover with Kamen America.
