TRADE PAPERBACK REVIEW OF THE WEEK
Abyss from Red 5 Comics
by Kevin Rubio (Author), Lucas Marangon (Author), Nick Schley (Author), Andrew Dalhouse (Author), Troy Peteri (Author)
Eric Hoffman was your average son of a single-parent eccentric billionaire, until the day he discovered a family secret — his dad is actually the world’s worst super-villain, ABYSS. Now Eric tries to redeem his legacy and stop his father’s plot to destroy San Francisco with the help of a killer robot, and the City by the Bay’s greatest heroes, ARROW and QUIVER. If only he could convince them he’s on their side. Join the dysfunctional costume-hero comedy adventure from the warped mind of Kevin Rubio, creator of parody film web phenomenon “TROOPS” and the creative team behind comedy smash “Star Wars: Tag and Bink”.
