This Free Comic Book Day, The Almighties get Recharged, Reloaded and Reduxed!

Following their critically acclaimed one-shot and Almighties Origins, The Almighties’ creators Sam Johnson (Geek-GirlCabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman) and Mike Gagnon (Classics IllustratedMonkeys & Midgets) are bringing us a 12-page free digital comic that gives you Origins and everything you need to to jump into the world of their comedy super-team.


“Do you sometimes have difficulty sleeping at night? Do you ever feel unfulfilled or have that nagging feeling in the back of your mind that there’s something missing from your life? Something important…? Well, I can say without any hyperbole that The Almighties: Recharged Reloaded Reduxed is that thing,” proclaims Johnson; “The Almighties are the first comedy super-team to fill the hole left by Mungo Coconut and his Flaming Galahs!”

If that’s a name that leaves you scratching your head at the blank space in your brain it’s just illuminated, well…that statement, like everything in Johnson & Gagnon’s comic book, is made with tongue firmly in cheek.

Originally ‘amassed’ in their Avengers-parodying debut – before disbanding when they found out their benefactor was a Neo Nazi – The Almighties have caught the eye of Joe Cyborg: a disembodied head attached to a robot body, who holds an undisclosed position at The White House.

“Joe wants his own strike force for ‘off the books’ assignments, so he gets together with Stefanos, another government employee of ambiguous vocation…” Johnson continues. “Stefanos is a kabob shop owner who (inexplicably) has earned the trust of not only Joe Cyborg, but of President Obama himself.”

As Joe and Stefanos review the files of Stef’s former team-mates, we learn the origins of armored ‘Career Super-Hero’ Maxi-Tron; cocky British punk/werewolf Nite Fang; former downtrodden housewife turned swingin’-superheroine Ms. F; and borderline psychopath Mason. “And if this doesn’t sound like an obvious bunch of ‘super-heroes’,” says Johnson, “Well… Joe Cyborg knows this crew were originally manipulated into carrying out the machinations of a Neo Nazi, so are his own motives whiter than white…? (no pun intended.)”

Written by Johnson & Gagnon, illustrated by Eleonora Kortsarz, Pablo Zambrano, Fran Jung, Ron Gravelle & Zack Rezendes, published by Actuality Press and rated ‘Teen,’ The Almighties Recharged Reloaded Reduxed previews The Almighties #0 – with bonus Ms. F and Mason material, setting up their series to come – and is available from Free Comic Book Day onwards at www.thealmighties.com

“As an ‘origin’ issue this hits all the right notes.” 3 Million Years.

“A comedic story with some very funny characters and a story that tells you just enough to get you excited over the next installment.” Curiosity of a Social Misfit.

“Johnson and Gagnon are having a great time and a lot of fun making this comic and it really shows!” Blog the Blummin’ Doors Off.
