Welcome back to a world where the rich can afford the best in super hero protection, but the poor have to get by with the heroic equivalent of third party, fire and theft. The “Lone Knight” returns from the pages of Hero: 9 to 5, but how will The Loner and the finest men and women that publicly funded super hero protection can supply cope when a mysterious figure leaves a trail of unconnected corpses in his wake?
How will a young hero deal with the loss of his mentor? And, more importantly, how will Thunder Woman get her groceries when she runs into Lash Lady at the store? In a world where being a super hero is just another job, what happens when there’s nobody left alive to pay the bill? Quietus — some men just want to watch the world die.
Hero: 9 to 5 - Quietus, the follow up to 2010’s satirical swipe at the tropes of modern super-hero comics, is now available to pre-order from The OUC Online Store for pick up at the Orang Utan Comics booth at London Super Comic Convention or mail order delivery after the show. Written by Ian Sharman with stunning art by David Gray and Yel Zamor, boasting a wonderful foreword by Mike Carey, and published by Markosia, the book is available to pre-order for the discount price of just £10 (usual price £11.99). The preview edition released at last year’s LSCC sold out quickly, so please pre-order to ensure you get a copy!
Zakk Ridley is just your average smuggler and rogue until he and his robotic partner, Dan, get caught up in an intergalactic conspiracy. Zakk dreams of an easy life roaming the galaxy and making a fast buck or two, but as they say, in space no one can hear you dream…
