Review: Undiscovered Country #15

Undiscovered Country #15

Welcome to “Zone Possibility” the latest part of a fractured United States. Undiscovered Country #15 lays out what the latest zone is about giving us the myth of America. “Zone Possibility” is an interesting one. So far, it’s populated with the stories that America is built upon. It’s a blend of “America f-yeah” full of characters who have taken on mythical proportions in the founding of our nation.

Undiscovered Country has always been an interesting series. While it has a surface level adventure, Scott Snyder and Charles Soule have put together a series the explores the various aspects that make up the nation. Those aspects are both good and bad. This latest “zone” looks to take that aspect and make it a literal manifestation. The nation is built upon stories and myths but underneath is something nefarious. There’s a clear exploration of the “American dream” and how that compares to the “American reality”. How far the two will take it will be interesting but so far, there’s no issue hinting at the criticism to come.

It’s hard to discuss the interesting twists but there’s a lot to ponder by the end of the issue. The direction feels pretty obvious but that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot to mine as far as ideas, exploration, and criticism. That extends to the exportation of America’s ideas and myths to the rest of the world. There’s some pretty deep reading possible with what’s presented in just this issue.

Giuseppe Camuncoli and Leonardo Marcello Grassi deliver the art joined by Matt Wilson on color and Crank! on lettering. What’s been great about the series is that each zone explored so far has such personality but at the same time everything works together. What’s interesting with Undiscovered Country #15 is the design and what’s presented in itself tells such a story. These are interpretations of American myths and history and we see a slightly worn down and beaten version of each. It’s a subtle detail but one that fits quite well into the world and what Snyder and Soule presents.

Undiscovered Country #15 is a solid issue of the series. There’s a lot to debate and think about. Each chapter has been an interesting examination of a facet of America. Each has entertained with lots of action and excitement and at the same time also delivered multiple layers to ruminate on. This issue is no exception to that delivering a look at this new zone and one that’ll already have you examining what’s being debated.
