Black Summer is one of my favorite Warren Ellis takes on the idea of superheroes, and maybe the best one since the first twelve issues of The Authority. It doesn’t hurt that he has detail-obsessed artistic powerhouse Juan Jose Ryp rendering every scene to perfection! That guy is something else!

When a super-powered protector of society decides the President of the USA is a criminal, the result is murder, mayhem, revolution, and sci-fi action and insanity. It’s a gore fest, a slug fest, and basically a fest to end all fests! Behold one of the lovely wraparound covers and some bold action pages from inside!

Collector’s Guide: Check out Black Summer in single issue form, TPB, or Hardcover.
