The modern incarnation of The Losers is our favorite action series of all time. If you saw the movie and think you know this comic book, then think again. If you like crime comics, this will be at the top of your list, too. We’re big fans of Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips’ Criminal, too, if that gives you any idea of our taste in crime comics!

When the Losers, once an elite U.S. Special Forces Unit, stumbled onto the C.I.A.’s dirty little secret, their refusal to play along got them murdered…or so the C.I.A. thought. Now the Losers are back, and out for payback against the organization that stabbed them in the back.

Let’s enjoy the first two scenes introducing our cast of Losers!
