Villains Seeking Hero, the series described as Mad Men meets The Office in a spandex suit, is dropping its entire first arc this week. The digital-first series from Action Lab: Danger Zone features a middle-aged has-been, the self-proclaimed king of the nonexistent Spirit World, and a mute muscleman of mystery as they endeavor to be the greatest super villains in the world. It’s written by Louis Southard and illustrated by Ben Matsuya.
Writer Louis Southard says:
I hope the reader can have a laugh and enjoy themselves while reading it, but also notice that there’s a larger, more complicated story at play in the background with the possibility of twists/reveals dropping at any moment.
The first five issues of Villain Seeking Hero will drop on April 8th, 2020 on ComiXology and Amazon Kindle. The following week sees the release of the collection with those five issues along with issues #6 – #8 and more is on the way.
I started messing around with the idea for this book when I was 16. Just watching it grow and develop over the years into something real is a very surreal experience. I never thought that something like this could happen to someone like me. There’s a lot of love in this book and I hope people can notice it.
