My thoughts on this new series from Action Lab: Danger Zone.
Marcus Greenberg has a very particular set of skills, as a former Navy S.E.A.L., he does the dirty work of our nation’s superheroes, keeping his clients out of the papers and off of death row. With the help of his assistant Russell, a reformed shape-shifting supervillain, Greenberg is the go-to-guy for making super-sins disappear. He is The Consultant.

A new series from Action Lab: Danger Zone, and this initial issue makes me think of Garth Ennis’s “The Boys” . This is looking at it from the other side. What if you had to clear up the messes of the major team of superheroes in the world? Whatever it takes is the answer here, and there are some big messes to clean up from.
There is also something going on in the background, where someone is making life difficult for the team and their transgressions are being found out.
It seems that someone is going for a ‘divide and conquer’ plan with the team and at this point, we don’t know who! There’s a lot of mystery in this issue and the dynamics of the teams and the characters are still yet to be worked out, but that will come.
I like the art style, with some nice scenes, with a good torture scene at the beginning, it looks quite tight, with some good inking and colours, I also like the flow of the panels.
I’ll be checking out #2 to see what comes next!
