What Do You Do When There’s ‘No One Left To Fight’?

by James Ferguson

Most movies end when the good guy saves the world and stops the villain. What happens after that? No One Left to Fight, a new mini-series from Dark Horse Comics, explores this idea. From writer Aubrey Sitterson and artist Fico Ossio, the comic follows a group of heroes that have been saving the world since childhood. What’s next for them?

Writer Aubrey Sitterson says:

Through series like Hellboy, Sin City, and Concrete Dark Horse fostered my dream to write comics, so an opportunity to follow in the footsteps of those series – as well as newer ones, like Black Hammer – is an honor that I don’t take lightly. I’m also thrilled that after years of admiring his detailed, expressive artwork from afar, not only do I finally get an opportunity to work with my friend Fico Ossio, but it’s on a creator-owned book that means so much to the both of us. No One Left To Fight takes everything we love about the greatest fighting series of all time, Dragon Ball, and puts it into the service of something new, a story about growing older, coming to grips with the choices you’ve made, and learning to appreciate what all your trials and tribulations have afforded you. With lots of explosive, earth-shattering action, obviously.

Since super hero comics are really just a never-ending second act, I’m always curious as to what a possible end would be like for characters like these. From the sound of it, No One Left to Fight is exactly what I’m looking for.

Artist Fico Ossio adds:

Ever since I met Aubrey, I was drawn to his over the top and creative storytelling. To finally work together—on our first creator owned comic for Dark Horse—is beyond my wildest dreams. Adding a new story to the house of amazing worlds like Hellboy, 300, The Umbrella Academy, and Black Hammer is a dream come true! For No One Left To Fight, we tapped into all our love and fandom for series like Dragon Ball Z, My Hero Academia and One Punch Man and created something new. It’s a story about heroes that have their best years behind them and no time to make any meaningful course corrections. It’s a journey—an actual road trip—about regrets and facing the choices they made in their lives…with epic and over the top battles immersed in a colorful and bizarre world!

No One Left to Fight #1 is set for release on July 3rd, 2019 and is currently available for pre-order.
