“I don’t like being a bastard, but they leave me no choice.” The quote above and its stark iconic portrait distills the grim atmosphere of Marshal Law, but only hints at the humor. After his initial appearance in an Epic Comics 6-issue series, the leather-clad Marshal went on to even more nefarious adventures. Ludicrously graphic violence, repulsive sex, and the slaughter of every shred of superhero decency you had left – all this and more awaits you in the pages of Marshal Law!
Marshal Law lays waste to super scumbags who parody the All Star Squadron and the Legion of Superheroes, tries to love his girlfriend even after she gets turned into a disgusting zombie, and discovers Batman is a child-mutilating psycho-freak. All in a day’s work for the biggest bastard of them all!
Let’s have a look inside a couple of paperbacks. We have Crime & Punishment: Marshal Law Takes Manhattan, and the Blood, Sweat, and Fears book. The latter reprints Kingdom of the Blind, The Hateful Dead, and Super Babylon. Also included here is the Secret Tribunal 2-issue series.
