Beginning with a riff on “legacy heroes,” Ennis mocks Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and more in a series of misadventures concerned less with story than with gross-out humor and absurdity.

Synopsis

From the world and the creators of HITMAN-Garth Ennis (PREACHER) and John McCrea (THE DEMON) bring you a comics legend, reborn!

In a universe of heroes, he was the mightiest of all-Sixpack, leader of the legendary super-team Section Eight. His band of misfits took on the forces of interdimensional Hell, and gave their lives to save the world. Last to fall was Sixpack himself-or was he?

Waking up in Noonan’s Sleazy Bar, Sixpack finds that his memory of that fateful day is somewhat hazy. What he does know for certain is that a grave new threat is coming-and only a reborn Section Eight can stop it.

Who can fill the storied shoes that contained such legends as Friendly Fire, the Defenestrator, Flemgem, and Jean De Baton? To face the oncoming peril, Sixpack must gather friends both old and new to fight at his side-Bueno Excellente, Baytor, a brand new Dogwelder, Powertool, Guts, and (try as we might to forget him), the Grapplah!

But Section Eight is still one member short, and Sixpack needs a heavy hitter to round out the team. Will it be Batman? Green Lantern? The Martian Manhunter? Wonder Woman? Or will the new Section Eighter come from the realms beyond life itself?

Collects ALL-STAR SECTION EIGHT #1-6 and CONVERGENCE: HARLEY QUINN #2.
 

About Garth Ennis

See more books from this Author
A cornerstone of the modern comic industry, Garth Ennis is most easily recognized as the creator of Preacher, one of the best-selling graphic novel series of all time. His full list of writing credits is nothing short of extraordinary; his career highlights include Judge Dredd, Hellblazer, The Demon, Hitman, Punisher, The Pro, War Story, and The Boys. Over the past ten years, Ennis has published numerous acclaimed and fan-favorite projects through Avatar Press, including Dicks, Chronicles Of Wormwood, 303, Streets Of Glory, and the wildly successful Crossed series. He wrote and directed his first film, Stitched, which Avatar Press will continue as an ongoing comic book series illustrated by Mike Wolfer. With a career spanning over twenty years, Mike Wolfer has been both writer and illustrator on many of Avatar Press' most popular titles, collaborating with some of the industry's most renowned writers including Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, and Alan Moore. As the guiding force behind such horror titles as Night of the Living Dead, Friday the 13th, and Escape of the Living Dead, Wolfer cemented his reputation as one of today's top creators of supernatural tales, a trend has continues with his writing credits on Warren Ellis' Gravel and Garth Ennis' Stitched, both of which he also illustrates. Avatar's sister company, Boundless Comics, has also benefited from Wolfer's flair for the macabre, as he writes both Brian Pulido's Lady Death and the "bad girl" extravaganza title, War Goddess. Robertson is the co-creator (with Warren Ellis) and artist for the acclaimed Transmetropolitan monthly series for DC's Vertigo imprint.
