For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the character, Liefeld describes it this way:

"A billion dollar-funded strike force with unlimited resources functioning as super-cops in an ultra-violent world and the media covering their every move told from the point of view of their latest and most reluctant recruit, Shaft. What's not to love?"
