The story, a spy thriller, is centered on a young Jewish-American man named Benjamin "Ben" Furst, who is initially introduced as a college student studying political science. After passing several tests, including a fake mugging, he is recruited by a beautiful young woman named D. D. into the Central Intelligence Agency and told that he is going to be the first agent of Project Fire (hence the title of the comic), an experiment to test whether training agents out of ordinary citizens can be successful.

Ben passes and becomes an agent under the command of Linda Dagger. He is placed in England to pose as a journalist named Jake Donaldson, and he is dispatched from time-to-time to set up assassinations in places around the world ranging from Japan to Brazil. He gradually becomes disillusioned with his lifestyle and job, and he begins to suspect that he is being set up himself.

One day, D. D., who had previously always treated him coldly, has sex with him. When Ben wakes up the next day, he is attacked by contract killers; Ben kills them and then breaks into CIA headquarters. He discovers that Project Fire is not a new experimental project, but rather something that has been going on for years; each such Project Fire agent is killed once the agent's superiors decide he has become a liability. Ben attempts to escape with the information, but he is captured by Linda Dagger.

Dagger sends D. D. to kill Ben, but Ben kills D. D. instead and escapes. He tries to send the information he has to a journalist to publicize, but before he can, at the end of the comic, Dagger finds him again and informs him that he either works for her or dies.

[Of course, some details may change in the movie script.]
Thanks for the info! This sounds like a possibility for a sequel/franchise...

I know of at least one person who got it via the local library, through the Interlibrary Loan Service (in U.S.A.) Probably any full-service bookstore can order it if it's not in stock. Specialty bookstores (comics stores) are a good bet.

Two copies are available right now on eBay, opening bid $4.50 with auction closing in 9 hours and opening bid $5.82, ending in 19 hours. There may be more, I only checked the first few dozen listings of this author's books. Search in the "Books" ssection but use the author's name (Bendis) rather than "Fire" because there are hundreds of other books with the word fire in their titles.

I haven't read it, but the "hero" is said to be a Geek/Nerd (a perfect role for Zac) and there's hot sex. Of course, the movie script may not follow the book faithfully.

Always a plus Big Grin
