The Angels Take Manhattan – My Own Perspective

September 7th, 2011 was the very 1st time I met the Doctor- thank you Netflix for keeping such good records. A dark time in my life: my wife had left me, I was jobless, money almost out, and friends were leaving me faster than I could realize. Worst that my life had ever been. The only thing that kept me going was the desire to not allow my kids to suffer. I really had nothing going on for me. Then I met the Doctor.

It was a salvation by any means but it was the 1st thing that actually made me laugh a real laugh and to want to sit and think about it.

The Activity

“The evolution of global warfare necessitates the evolution of special forces to rise and meet the call. The U.S Army has therefore looked to its last secret special operations tribe, the INTELLIGENCE SUPPORT ACTIVITY, or Gray Fox. Within Gray Fox is a team of elite men and women whose mission is flexible, whose technology is bleeding edge, and whose execution is precise and lethal. They are Team Omaha, and they serve THE ACTIVITY.”

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the final hard copy books that I brought back with me from C2E2. This series almost got overlooked because it fell behind some more recent books in the magic review bag...
