Top 100 Summer Comics #29

A gem from a few years back by a writer, Matt Fraction, who has taken on a huge roll in the Marvel U – yet for some reason this series just slipped through the cracks.

#29 – The Order #3

Maybe it was the name. Originally it was supposed to be called The Champions but some overly examined and wack reasons got in the way so… The Order. It’s a little more utilitarian, but it worked. The team was all new characters, and to be honest was on it’s way too really building a nice synergy. Unfortunately, it was given about three hours to breath before it was tossed to the curb. I anticipate this group to eventually be given a 2nd shot by someone else who saw the admirable qualities of the group… be that now or in 5, 10, or 15 years.

Until then, pick up this issue and see my favorite mutilation of the skid row population. Hobos becoming Zombies… Zobos. I guess that’s better than Hombies.

    this was my favorite book to come out of The Initiative, So glad it’s getting some type of recognition considering no one even remembers it . It pretty much proves that the quality of a book does not matter if there are no A or B listers to be found inside.
