Danger Club Vol. 1: Death
- Imagine if DC or Marvel were to do an event comic where all the main heroes and even their villains were to go into space to fight some cosmic level threat...but didn't return. Now imagine that same world and the sidekicks are the only "heroes" left. They have no idea what happened to their partners, they have no idea if they are ever coming back, and they have to assume that whatever the heroes went to stop is still on it's way to Earth.
Damn. Landry Walker and Eric Jones waste no time dropping you right into the middle of a thriving universe filled with superheroes, mystery, and intrigue. Danger Club Vol. 1 picks up 3 months after the heroes of Earth have disappeared. Walker does a fantastic job introducing the reader to a rich world, filled with it's own mythology but he doesn't bog you down with trying to tell you what happened before. We might not know what Kid Vigilante's origin story is but that doesn't stop Walker from making him and the rest of the cast of Danger Club into some of the most interesting and dynamic new characters around.
Artistically, this book is gold. Eric Jones is a superstar. This trade may have only been 4 issues but Jones is steady and solid the entire time. Bottom line, this trade is $10 and it is an absolute steal. Buy it and enjoy!
