Vertigo has announced it will offer a look at the brutality of war in East Africa with Unkown Soldier, written by Joshua Dysar and Alberto Ponticelli.
This series introduces us to Moses Lwanga, a pacifist doctor who leaves the comforts of America to provide much-needed aid to Uganda, the country of his birth. While working in an Internally Displaced Persons camp near Kitgum, his religious teachings and pacifist beliefs are tested by an encounter with members of the Lord’s Resistance Army, who have kidnapped and nearly killed a little girl. This encounter unexpectedly triggers a previously dormant, ruthless ability to kill. Somehow, Moses knows how to murder with unparalleled skill, and he is scarcely aware of his own actions until the group of LRA soldiers lies dead at his feet. An unknown soldier lives within him, fearless and deadly.
