• The Victories #10

    Released by: Dark Horse Comics
    Released on: March 5, 2014

    The world that the superheroes known as The Victories inhabit has taken a pretty serious beating lately: Nearly all the superheroes were trapped in what amount to concentration camps, their strongest member compromised, and an Armageddon is raging on Earth has been unleashed with blame being laid at the feet of the superheroes.

    While some of The Victories managed to escape they split their efforts, some fighting the hellish beasts recently unleashed and others doing more investigative work, to try and get at what or who is behind all this. Faustus and his companions are trying to figure out why their leader Metatron actually killed someone, a villain by the name of the Jackal, and left his body on some cryptic stones. Others start digging through new information about the people in the camps. And others yet are seeking out old powerful groups that might not be as benevolent as they seem…

    A great mix of all different types of superhero tropes author & artist Michael Avon Oeming does a great job at moving the story forward while catching certain characters up in the action. Unrelenting and easy to get in on this series is proving to be a very darkly humorous take on pretty much the entirety of superhero existence.
