Mitchell Hundred has faced countless challenges in his time as mayor of New York City, from political scandals to supernatural killers, but nothing could have prepared him for America's coming war in Iraq. As a massive peace protest fills the streets of Manhattan, the mayor must choose between the liberty of his constituents and the safety of his city, but will a tragedy change that equation forever? Plus, in a never-before-told story from the mayor's super-heroic past, the Great Machine's horrific archenemy, a man known as Pherson, is finally revealed...

March to War sees mayor Mitchell Hundred having to make a number of difficult decisions in the running of New York City. His choices won't just impact on the faceless people on the streets of the city, and he discovers that it's harder to make that call when he is messing with people's lives who are on his team.

When an antiwar protest march comes under a terrorist attack - leaving one his his aides in a coma, Hundred has to do his best to quell a rising tide of violence on both sides of the political spectrum.

And, in a look at Hundred's past as the super hero The Great Machine, we discover how Hundred copes with a super villain on the streets of his city? A man who has similar powers to Hundred is on the prowl. But, unlike Hundred's ability to control machines, this individual has the power to control animals.

March to War is another excellent collection in what is quickly becoming a must own series. Intelligently written, and beautifully illustrated - what more could you ask for?
