A time in the future when our two great countries, Canada and the United States, have amalgamated. Within the U.S.N.A. and especially in parts of the former country of Canada, there is a growing discontent. Family farms have been replaced by huge corporate farms that exploit the bulging prison populations as labour. Severe drought has lead to food shortages and rationing in the cities. The young people are being conscripted to fight in the Cent-am wars. The groundswell of rebellion is building and the rebels are planning the return of their leader, the exiled ex-prime minister of Canada, Samuel Stern. To combat this threat, a new organization has been created by the administration of USNA. It's a covert homeland security force; the Strategic Home Alliance Defense Organization (S.H.A.D.O.). Operating on the fringes of the law, their mission is simple: locate and eliminate any rebel activity using deadly force if necessary. USNA: The United States of North America is the story of the people’s fight against tyranny. It takes place in our backyard.

"A really intriguing premise, tightly plotted, and engaging characters. Some very nice twists and turns along the way. I think it's a wonderful property." —Joseph Mallozi, television producer, Stargate
"USNA is a meaty read, full of blood and bullets. It’s easy to imagine it as a film, though the comic format gives it a greater scope . . . than a modest budget would allow." —Bryn Evans, Fast Forward Magazine
"Whether you think the story is fact or fiction, there's no denying that USNA is an entertaining yarn that focuses on a rebel movement that springs up after the amalgamation." —Eric Volmer, Calgary Herald
"USNA is a clear loud voice from some artists who know what they want to say, and have put it all together in a very sharp, easy to digest package. Easily the best independent comic I've read in years." —Axel Matfin, author, The Bartender: Darkness on the Edge of Town
