Writer: Gail Simone
Artist: Freddie E. Williams II
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $2.99

We are faceless. We are limitless. We see all. And we do not forgive.

Who defends the powerless against the GREEDY and the CORRUPT? Who protects the homeless and poverty-stricken from those who would PREY upon them in the DARK OF NIGHT?

When those who are sworn to protect us abuse their power, when toxic government calls down super-human lackeys to force order upon the populace…finally, there is a force, a citizen’s army, to push order BACK.

Let those who abuse the system know this as well: We have our OWN super humans now. They are not afraid of your badges or Leagues. And they will not be SILENCED.

We are your neighbors. We are your co-workers. And we are your children.

  1. I haven’t read the book but it sounds like Bats gang of the Dark Knight Rises meets Robocop, with all this being set in Crime Ally. It sounds interesting to a point but at the end of the day I’d rather see this story with last honest cop in Gotham and man that dresses like a bat.

    And how do you tell a moment against corporations is dead. When major corporations are using it in there branding. ie we are the 99% Thankfully we should see less pooping on police cars, rapes, and drugs use in this book than marked the real occupy movement.

    That is a interesting overtone as well that one of the most prominent female writers is being ask to basically gorily a moment that systematically covered up rapes inside there camps “for the good up the moment” That is the baggage of this issue because of the way they have chosen to brand it.

    You said there were very strong options on this book around the internet. I’m guessing most of that was more based on the reviewers support or lack support of the Occupy movement. All credit to you guys for reviewing the book as a comic book and not on the politics around it. Your better people than me for that

    Keep up the good Work

    Was just going to say, if it’s the one I’m thinking about Grimm is based on the TV show (which I happen to enjoy) that you’re reviewing next. Very curious to hear your take – I have the first couple of issues already on preorder to give it a whirl!
