DC Comics Present Their Own Heroes-For-Hire In ‘One-Star Squadron’ #1 This December

by Olly MacNamee

After reading Infinite Frontier I had hoped for the imminent announcement of an Infinite Inc. reboot. But, on hearing that Mark Russell will be teaming up with artist Steve Lieber for new comedic six-issue series One-Star Squadron, I’ll happy settle for that instead.

Featuring PowerGirl, Red Tornado and some of DCU’s biggest C-listers (can C-listers be described as big, I wonder?), here’s what you need to know about this all-new funny book from DC Comics:

One-Star Squadron is DC’s Super Hero team, where heroism meets capitalism. This ragtag group of heroes led by Red Tornado is here to provide service with a smile. All you have to do is send a request via their on-demand hero app and they’ll answer any call. Whether it’s a children’s birthday party or an alien invasion, no job is too small or too big in this story about the Super Heroes without a billion dollar fortune or Fortress of Solitude to fall back on… heroes like Red Tornado, Power Girl, Gangbuster, and Minute Man. Follow these working stiffs as they work for a living while trying to parse one of the great mysteries of the world–just who’s signing those checks and why?

And for fans looking to laugh, or just looking for a bargain, it’s One-Star Squadron.

From Harvey, Ringo and Eisner nominee Mark Russell (WONDER TWINS, EXIT STAGE LEFT: THE SNAGGLEPUSS CHRONICLES) and Eisner and Ringo winner Steve Lieber (SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN), comes a one-of-a-kind six-issue limited series that promises Superman-Level Service at Bizarro Prices! ”
