Out today from Sam Johnson and Mike Gagnon comes their hilarious take on the superhero group, The Almighties.
Written by the pair and featuring artwork from Eleonora Kortsarz, Pablo Zambrano and D.C. White the comic has managed to build up quite a following with fans already; but it is time to spread the word to new fans as well as old that they should be picking up this comic.
Without wanting to give too much of the plot away for those who have yet to pick up the comic, the story follows Maxi-Tron, Nite Fang, Ms. F, Mason and Stefanos as they are brought together by the mysterious White Out to form The Almighties in an attempt to fight crime across America. Nothing is as it seems though in this story and things take a rather dramatic turn towards the end of the comic, after the group have already completed three of the missions set out by White Out.
Never fear though, this comic isn’t all about the serious and dramatic! Littered throughout the pages are some laugh out loud on liners (I’m personally hoping “Who wants salad?” catches on as a major catchphrase throughout the series) and a nice little piece of advice to always check for testicular cancer; it all makes sense when you read it!
It is a solid start to what looks to be a hugely enjoyable series. For those looking for a great superhero group, but without all the seriousness that sometimes goes along with them, I definitely recommend checking out The Almighties. Hopefully the rest of the series will carry on with the laughs that the first issue has provided and over time we will find out more about Stefanos and his connections with the White House and whether he will ever trust his nephew again to put on the fries; only time will tell.
