Ciò che era anticipato con l'episodio di "Real War Stories", prende finalmente corpo in un graphic novel per la Eclipse sotto la direzione di Joyce Brabner: Shadowplay - The secret team, con la collaborazione di Bill Sienkiewicz. La storia vuole denunciare nel loro complesso la serie delle attività illecite svolte dalla CIA dal 1945 a oggi. Avvalendosi della grande capacità immaginifica di Sienkiewicz, Moore costruisce un documento di denuncia oggettivo e simbolico, le metafore ancora nascoste hanno qui l'opportunità di mostrarsi in tutta la loro significazione, e possono decadere dal piano letterario-simbolico per gettare in pieno volto al lettore la verità di cui sono portatrici. Il sogno americano è interamente corrotto tanto che la stessa aquila reale, con la quale l'America si è sempre identificata, è ingiallita dalla nicotina delle sigarette ed è costretta a svolgere il ruolo di un commesso viaggiatore, la cui merce consiste nei servizi criminosi compiuti dai servizi segreti statunitensi. Nella ventiquattrore dell'aquila ci sono solo frattaglie sparse e marciume, che strabordano nel tentativo di raggiungere noi lettori, gli osservatori, gli estranei che sembrano risvegliarsi solo ora da un sogno (quello americano appunto).
