Crystallized in the nimble mind of Supernatural creator Eric Kripke and the talented hands of HELLBLAZER artist John Higgins, JACKED brings superheroes back down to earth—and rubs their chemically enhanced faces in the dirt!

Josh Jaffe has become invisible. Not literally—his receding hairline and protruding beer belly are certainly there for all to see. But his downsized career is going nowhere, his kids barely acknowledge his existence, and his wife might as well be a stranger. As far as the rest of the world is concerned, Josh has faded away.

But that was before he discovered a mysterious new drug on the Internet—a miracle compound called Jacked that promises to enhance both brain and body to their maximum potential. Of course, it’s pure snake oil for 99.99 percent of the people who take it. But for Josh, it’s a ticket to heightened senses, astonishing strength, insane bravery, and a newly satyric sex drive.

A single pill takes him from middle-aged zero to real-life superhero—and it’s not long before he’s thwarting crime in increasingly bloody ways.

Helping others—as always, that’s where the trouble really starts.

Collects JACKED #1-6.
