Almost ten years later, Osama Bin Laden was killed by the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group, commonly known as DEVGRU… and previously known as Seal Team 6. The name Disney then tried to trademark.
Dynamite Entertainment must be pleased that public reaction saw them remove that application. Today they have published Punisher writer Chuck Dixon’s new fictional book about the counter terrorist team, Seal Team Six on the Kindle for 99 cents.
They describe the book thus;
In SEAL Team Six: The Novel, a mass shooting at a California big box store begins a new round of murder from an unknown source. America is suffering a virus of homegrown terror as one-man cells are inspired by a new kind of terrorist who speaks to them through websites, tweets and emails. These lone wolves get their orders and directions on how to carry them out from a man known only as Young El. His identity and face aren’t known. Counter-intelligence agencies in the West have only the voice on his podcasts to identify him. The super-secret group often know as SEAL Team Six is the point of the spear to find, and eliminate, this new source of murder and suffering. Their hunt takes them from their base in the USA to a deadly labyrinth in the Phillipines and, finally, a terror stronghold deep in the jungles of Borneo . You’ll train with these men, fight alongside them and share their danger and losses. America ‘s gunfighters take the battle to the home turf of terror no matter where on the planet it hides.
“This is straight up, unapologetic military action set against the fast-changing background of the war on terror,” says SEAL Team Six writer Chuck Dixon. “There’s no mercy and no rules as the world’s toughest warriors face the world’s most murderous outlaws. If you’re tired of heroes who pull their punches and question their own motives and missions this one’s for you. These are true American super-heroes fighting in the worst places in the world to ensure our safety.”
It’s true, Chuck’s politics have always seemed a little on the neoconservative side for me. But when writing this kind of book, that’s probably a plus. Gotta love his Punisher…
