A Superhero Powered By Booze and Bongs? Buzzkill Collected From Image Comics This September

by Oliver MacNamee

A superhero, but only when he’s drunk or off his box on drugs? Sounds like my kind of guy. And, this September, Donny Cates (God Country, Redneck) and Mark Reznicek and artists Geoff Shaw (God Country), and Lauren Affe deliver to us the Buzzkill trade paperback from Image Comics:

BUZZKILL follows Ruben, an unconventional superhero who gets his powers through the consumption of alcohol and illicit drugs. On one fateful day, facing a world-ending threat, Reuben drank so much that he blacked out. He saved the world…but he has no idea how or why. Now, he’s in recovery, trying to get sober and piece together not only the events of the night in question, but the broken parts of his life as an alcoholic and an addict.
