“Tom Clancy meets Captain America” in a story about fighting to uphold the ideal.
Patriot-1 is a story about an American soldier whose mission is to change the way the world perceives America and what it stands for. On that same not, Patriot-1 believes in doing the right thing for humanity above all else. This isn’t an “America F yeah!!!” type story, it’s critical of how the country is perceived and how it uses it’s power throughout the world. It’s referred to as “Tom Clancy’s Captain America” because it blends the action and real-world style of Tom Clancy books and movies with the idealism of Captain America.
Lies, deception and betrayals leave Baker wondering what he fights for and who he can really trust. As the war in Afghanistan has all but ended, the conspiracy soon reveals a new and bigger threat, one that prompts Baker to make a unique statement as Patriot-1.

One year later, Patriot-1 leads “Task Force Patriot” – part of a secretive and autonomous agency called Dark Zero. Their mission is simple: reinforce America’s shaky alliances and change perceptions by showing the world that America is committed to doing what’s right. Knowing his mission is an uphill battle and may even be pointless, Baker feels the weight of the ideal he’s trying to represent and it often leads to him making impulsive decisions. As tension begins to mount within the ranks of Task Force Patriot, the team is forced to shift focus when a new group – led by a mysterious figure adopting a more extreme version of Patriot-1’s philosophy – emerges.

PREVIOUS PRAISE FOR PATRIOT-1
2015 IPPY Award Winner: Graphic Novel – Drama/Documentaty
Patriot-1 has all the elements of a summer blockbuster – big explosions, major fights, even a romance. But in the way it’s grounded in the real world and the thoughtful way it builds characters, events and action, this fun graphic novel delivers something more memorable than that. – COMICS BULLETIN
[Patriot-1] is a tense, gripping thriller filled with visceral action and a very well rounded cast. At times it reminded me of what I’ve been missing in a military action comic since the end of Andy Diggle and Jock’s The Losers (which turned into a flick that also featured that Captain guy).– GOD HATES GEEKS
Outstanding graphic novel in every way. Well written, intelligent, great clear art. Can’t wait to read the next story with these characters. – Allen (Amazon review)
