Cartoonist Benjamin Marra brilliantly satirizes America’s obsession with justice — and disinterest in consequences — via a highly stylized, hyper- masculine style that gushes with violence, sex, and international intrigue, battering down the boundaries between psychedelia, political commentary, and aggressive expressionism. Terror Assaulter must defeat Terror at all costs, as long as it leaves time for steamy dates with hot chicks. The man’s codename is O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror) and he is the world’s greatest protector, and a villain’s worst nightmare. This is a hilarious satire of American foreign policy over the last decade, neocon philosophy, the state of American masculinity and sexuality, and male power fantasy in escapist entertainment.

"When you get the chance to work with Benjamin Marra, you do it. I love the stuff that he did in "Terror Assaulter O.M.W.O.T (One Man War On Terror)." I just couldn't match the sheer savagery and ferocity of that stuff, so we thought that we would do a modern take on almost one of those EC science fiction stories from the fifties. I think it's an anti-war tale with a big twist, which you don't get to see until next issue. And again, I love what Benjamin did with it." — Comic Book Resources

"A saucy blend of over the top violence, in your face graphics and themes of exploitation movies." — Comics Beat

"Terror Assaulter is nothing but graphic violence interspersed with graphic sex: just panel after panel of one type of pounding or another." — Paste

"Nothing is spared in this searing and hilarious indictment of US foreign policy over the last decade, whether it be neocon philosophy, the state of American masculinity and sexuality or the male power fantasy in escapist entertainment." — Broken Frontier

"It's an over-the-top tribute to the black-and-white boom of the late '80s, but O.M.W.O.T. takes it a step further. It's the comic that the weird kid in your class would draw after half-watching an 'erotic thriller' on cable in 1992, in the absolute best way, and the single greatest gag in the whole thing is that everyone — everyone — is constantly just bluntly stating what they're doing, as they do it, with no inflection or emphasis. That's funny enough when they're fighting and you get dialogue like 'ah, he kicked our hands' or 'you chopped my throat,' but when it's the sex scene? That, friends, is worth the cover price all on its own." — Comics Alliance

"This preview just scratches the surface of the insanity Marra brings to the pages of this graphic novel, and readers can check out more of this twisted satire when Terror Assaulter (O.M.W.O.T.) hits stands." — The A.V. Club

"Marra is trying to single-handedly restore some ‘order’ to comics." — Frank Santoro

"Like Douglas Sirk directing an Abel Ferrara script ..." — Sammy Harkham
