"SIEGE is a welcome find, the characters cleverly drawn . . . It is cynical, humorous, violent, and Byzantine. In other words., it admirably reflects the current world state of affairs." —Baltimore Sun


Gibraltar-there's no way it can be taken, it's impregnable. Until a group of terrorists infiltrate the stronghold and take the 20,000 British subjects hostage.

Freeing them becomes the job of the CIA's James Burlane and Ella Nidech. They get a lot of help they don't need and some they may not be able to do without: After all, as long as the apes remain on Gibraltar, the English will rule....

"Pure fun from beginning to end!" —United Press International
