In 1988, Vietnam veteran and ex-Green Beret, John J. Rambo pushed the Soviets out of Afghanistan.*
With the Ruskies gone, the Taliban, led by the anti-Soviet Mujahideen, seized power in Kabul. After apparently forgetting how awesome and badass Rambo is, the Taliban gave refuge to Osama Bin Laden and his terrorist gang - Al Queda.
Rambo 3.5 won the 2010 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Mini-Comic. It was an honorable mention in Best American Comics and published in a sweet German edition as part of the Zwerchfell Black Label series. It was reprinted in Treasury of Mini-Comics Volume Two (Fantagraphics).
